Flexoelectricity in nematic liquid crystals

Abstract:

Flexoelectricity in liquid crystals is thought to be due to a coupling between dielectric properties and shape anisotropy of the molecules and described by the flexoelectric coefficients e1 and e3. Two experiments are needed to measure e1 and e3 and it is usual to measure the difference (e1e3) and the sum (e1 + e3) and then calculate e1 and ...
