Scientists have investigated an intriguing form of self-assembly in liquid crystals: When the liquid crystals are filled into cylindrical nanopores and heated, their molecules form ordered rings as they cool — a condition that otherwise does not naturally occur in the material. This behavior allows nanomaterials with new optical and electrical properties.
