Defects in liquid crystals: mathematical and experimental studies

Abstract:

Nematic liquid crystals are mesogenic materials that are popular working materials for optical displays. There has been an increased interest in bistable liquid crystal devices which support two optically distinct stable equilibria. These devices typically exploit a complex geometry or anchoring conditions, which often induces defects in the equilibria. There remains a great deal to be understood about the structure of the defects and how they stabilize multiple equilibria in modern device...
