Comparison of the dynamics of liquid-liquid transition between with and without rubbing treatment.
Comparison of the dynamics of liquid-liquid transition between with and without rubbing treatment.

Researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science University of Tokyo、Professor Hajime Tanaka and project researcher Dr. Ken-ichiro Murata (currently, Assistant Professor at Institute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University), have found that liquid-liquid transition between two liquid states with different local structures can be accelerated by a rubbing treatment, which is widely used to align liquid crystal molecules in a liquid-crystalline display.
