Liquid Crystals are a state of matter that lies between the classical liquid and solid state. What defines a liquid crystal is the long-range orientation order similar to a solid and the ability to move translationally like a liquid, which provides the ability to change their configuration. There are numerous types of liquid crystals that each have individual properties. Commonly known liquid crystals are nematic, which has a common orientation but no positional ordering, and smetic, which has a common orientation and positional ordering in one direction and random orientation in the other directions.
