Modeling out-of-plane actuation in thin-film nematic polymer networks: From chiral ...
Scientific Reports (2017)
Various experimental and theoretical studies demonstrate that complex stimulus-responsive out-of-plane distortions such as twist of different chirality, emergence of cones, ...
Light scattering study of the “pseudo-layer” compression elastic constant in ...
Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (2016)
The nematic twist-bend (TB) phase, exhibited by certain achiral thermotropic liquid crystalline (LC) dimers, features a nanometer-scale, heliconical rotation of ...
Morphology Transition in Lipid Vesicles Due to In-Plane Order and ...
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (2013)
Complex morphologies in lipid membranes typically arise due to chemical heterogeneity, but in the tilted gel phase, complex shapes can ...
Maier-Saupe-Type Theory of Ferroelectric Nanoparticles in Nematic Liquid Crystals
Physical Review E (2011)
Several experiments have reported that ferroelectric nanoparticles have drastic effects on nematic liquid crystals-increasing the isotropic-nematic transition temperature by about ...
