Modeling the helical flexoelectro-optic effect.

Abstract:

The helical flexoelectro-optic effect shows interesting in-plane electro-optic switching behavior due to flexoelectric coupling with applied electric fields. Previous understanding of the behavior has been generally based on an analytic approach that makes certain assumptions about the uniformity of the helical structure and the induced tilt angle under field application. Here we remove these assumptions and develop a perturbative approximation to describe the structure in more detail. We als...
