Cellulose, Cholesteric liquid crystals, Bragg reflection, Color

Cellulose is the most abundant organic compound on the earth, and has attracted considerable interest as one of sustainable materials. Cellulose derivatives are well-known to exhibit cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) with visible reflection. This presentation reports on our research accomplishments of cellulose CLCs for full-color imaging and mechanical stress sensing.
