Liquid crystals LCs are often known as electronic displays and have become ubiquitous in our daily life, apart from that, in the past 10 years, LCs have been investigated as exquisitely sensitive reporters for developing new molecular sensing and detection tools. The unique and primary advantage of this class of intriguing materials is the perturbation of the local ordering LCs at molecular scale by bio-chemical species can be communicated within LC molecules and extended over microns, allowing the observation of the optical signals by microscope or even the naked eye. Therefore, it provides a new platform for developing bio-chemical detection and potentially label-free sensing systems.
