Nematohydrodynamics for colloidal self-assembly and transport phenomena

Abstract:

Hypothesis

Colloidal particles in a nematic liquid crystal (NLC) exhibit very different behaviour than that observed in an isotropic medium. Such differences arise principally due to the nematic-induced elastic stresses exerted as due to the interaction of NLC molecules with interfaces, which competes with traditional fluid viscous stresses on the particle.

Theory

A systematic mathematical analysis of the behaviour of particles placed in the flow within an NLC mic...
