Orientational ordering and dynamics of rodlike polyelectrolytes.

Abstract:
The interplay between electrostatic interactions and orientational correlations is studied for a model system of charged rods positioned on a chain, using Monte Carlo simulation techniques. It is shown that the coupling brings about the notion of electrostatic frustration, which in turn results in: (i) a rich variety of orientational orderings such as chiral phases, and (ii) an inherently slow dynamics characterized by stretched-exponential behavior in the relaxation functions of the system.
