Homepage of the DFKG

Since the discovery of the first liquid crystal in 1888, research on the liquid crystalline state of order has developed into an interdisciplinary subject in itself, combining the research areas of the chemical-, physical-, biological- and applications sciences. The DFKG wants to serve as a forum for the widespread scientific exchange of the results of liquid crystal research and promote co-operation between scientists involved in research and development.
