Liquid Crystals

Monitors and displays are indispensable in today's world. The heart of an LC display are liquid crystals - a product of the chemical industry, which can be synthesized in a condensation reaction in school lessons.

Due to the high relevance to everyday life, the focus of the Liquid Crystals learning unit lies in the functionality of the displays. The unit, which was developed in the Bohrmann-Linde work group, allows students to get to know the individual components of an LC monitor, to investigate the properties of the liquid crystals and concludes with the construction of a three-color model display.
