American Physical Society honors outstanding achievements of two Brandeis scientists

pioneered the ferroelectric properties of chiral liquid crystals, whose molecules are not identical to their mirror image, leading to several new applications. One is an invention by Professor Noel Clark of the University of Colorado, who shares the Buckley Prize with Meyer, of a new class of LCD technology that effectively triples the quality of the display's resolution. Meyer's work laid the foundation for the creation of more than 50,000 new liquid crystal materials, fueling a mini-industry in the chemistry and applications of ferroelectric liquid crystals.

Redfield's research on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy goes back five decades to his seminal work on spin dynamics and investigation into normal and superconducting metals using field-cycling NMR. Several years before he joined the Brandeis faculty in 1972, Redfield began to research biological macromolecules using NMR. With his help at Brandeis, the university established itself as a leader in the application of NMR to biological macromolecules that continues to distinguish Brandeis today, in part through Redfield's current NIH-funded research further developing field cycling NMR in biopolymers.
