About the Author

Vladimir G. Chigrinov obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Crystallography, USSR Academy of Sciences, in 1978, and his state doctorate from the same Institute in 1988. Since 1996, he has been working as a leading scientist at the Shubnikov Institute of Crystallography in Moscow, prior to which he held a post as head of division of the Organic Intermediates and Dyes Institute, Scientific Research Center of Russia. Dr. Chigrinov is a member of the editorial board of the journal 'Liquid Crystal Today' and the author of several books and numerous scientific papers. He is Visiting Associate Professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and a senior member of the Society for Information Display.

Sergey V. Pasechnik received his Ph.D. degree from the All-Union Engineering Institute in Moscow in 1980, and his state doctorate from the Moscow Pedagogical University in 1999. In 1999, he accepted a professorship for bioengineering at the Moscow State Academy of Instrument Engineering and Computer Science, where he is also the Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Acoustics. From 2003 to 2006, Dr. Pasechnik stayed as a visiting scholar at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He has published more than 120 scientific articles and is a member of the International Liquid Society and of the Society for Information Display.
