DescriptionCertificate of Election
CitationProfessor Mark Warner FRS
Professor of Theoretical Physics, Cavendish Laboratory, University of Cambridge
Mark Warner is one of the founders of the field of Liquid Crystal Elastomers and has thereby predicted new phenomena hitherto unknown to classical elasticity, liquid crystals and rubber, for instance large thermo and opto-mechanical effects, liquid-like shape changes, mechano-chiral response and soft ferro-electric solids. He has pioneered much of the statistical mechanical understanding of polymer liquid crystals. His work has inspired experiment and theory in a large number of groups internationally in chemistry, physics, mathematics, engineering and industry pursuing novel mechanics, photo-actuation, rubber lasers and optically-driven ferro-electric rubber.
