Drag on Particles in a Nematic Suspension by a Moving Nematic-Isotropic InterfacePhysical Review E
- cellular solid behavior,
- liquid-crystal colloids,
We report a clear demonstration of drag on colloidal particles by a moving nematic-isotropic interface. The balance of forces explains our observation of periodic, striplike structures that are produced by the movement of these particles.
