Hui-Yu Chen and Kuan-Cheng Su, featured ILCS liquid crystal artists, March 2023
Prof. Hui-Yu Chen has worked at the Department of Physics, National Chung Hsing University (Taiwan) since 2013. From 2006 to 2007, she worked in the Prof. Noel Clark's group, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA and focused on the Sematic A LC and other interesting LC phases. After she got her PhD degree in Applied Physics, Chung Yuan Christian University (Taiwan) in 2007, she became an assistant prof. at the Department of Photonics, Feng Chia University (Taiwan). Her lab.-Liquid Crystal Material Research Lab.-focused on the physical properties and field-induced optical response on LCs with chirality.
It’s his second year of master degree and woking on Prof. Hui-Yu Chen’s group, at department of Physics, National Chung Hsing University, Taiwan. Surveying the structure of dimer liquid crystal can always surprise him. Hope that he could share more interesting picture with us in the future.
Jury comment: The photo, that it corresponds to the mesophase shown by very attractive materials, shows how liquid crystals combine science and artistic aspects, so the picture is very attractive from an aesthetic and artistic point of view.
