Liquid crystal

non-classical state of the matter
日本語: 液晶

Liquid crystals are a class of materials that, under some conditions, inhabit a phase in which they exhibit isotropic, fluid-like behavior – that is, with little long-range ordering – but which under other conditions inhabit one or more phases with significant anisotropic structure and long-range ordering while still having an ability to flow. Their best known use is in Liquid Crystal Displays
