Noctua has created a new fan with a 0.5mm clearance between blade and frame. A new plastic named Sterrox LCP with high tensile strength and low thermal expansion has been used to create an efficient fan which is has stiffer blades and is relatively quiet. The new Sterrox LCP is a glass-fiber reinforced liquid crystal polymer.

An international research team has developed a method to manipulate liquid crystals that would increase the viewing angle on LCD TVs. The researchers worked with several LCPs composed of long molecules, finding that a minuscule variation in the structure changed their orientation. The technology used to do this is considerably cheaper and could revolutionize the LCD TV market.
