What is it about?
Phase information is needed to recover the electron density from diffraction data obtained from a crystal sample. This is called the phase problem, and various methods have been proposed for solid crystal samples. In this study, I proposed a method to solve this problem for liquid crystals with three-dimensional periodicity.

Why is it important?
Often a separate measurement is needed to solve the phase problem, but with this method, the phase information can be recovered from the diffraction data alone.
