Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book examines recent progress in the development and application of optical polymers, molecular crystals, crystals in liquids and liquid crystals. The accomplishment of a high macroscopic polarization is a key issue throughout which transcends the design and performance criteria of optical materials. The chapters included in this volume focus on orientation order and the achievement of macroscopic polarizations.

Book News Annotation:

Papers from a symposium at the 218th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, held in August 1999 in New Orleans, Louisiana, report on recent advances in the development of organic materials for optics. Papers are arranged in sections on characterization of polar materials, organic thin films, molecular materials and crystals, liquid and crystals, and liquid crystals. Specific topics include quantitative measurement of internal molecular electric fields in solids, self-assembly growth of organic thin films and nanostructures by molecular beam deposition, and iodine and organoiodide templates in supramolecular synthesis. Other topics are optical probes of crystal growth mechanisms, applications of organic microcrystals, and design of smectic liquid crystal phases using layer interface clinicity. Glaser teaches chemistry at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Kaszynski teaches chemistry at Vanderbilt University.
