  1. Huh. I did research on twisted nematic phase liquid crystals and yet if not heard of this phase. Wikipedia says:

    >”A cholesteric liquid crystal display (ChLCD) is a display containing a liquid crystal with a helical structure and which is therefore chiral. Cholesteric liquid crystals are also known as chiral nematic liquid crystals”

    Definition of cholesteric:

    >”of, relating to, or being the phase of a liquid crystal characterized by arrangement of molecules in layers with the long molecular axes parallel to one another in the plane of each layer and incrementally displaced in successive layers to give helical stacking”

  2. Looks like the patterns you get in micelles and self-assembly. I can’t remember the exact terms, but it was in the nanoscience subject I did last semester.
