- Liquid crystals;
Printing of well defined micro-structures using a soft lithographic technique based on liquid crystalline inks is presented. Monolithic structures with tunable macromolecular organization can be locally printed with a variety of optical functionalities. Applications in the fields of displays and security- features are shown.
