Nematic and Cholesteric Liquid Crystals

Concepts and Physical Properties Illustrated by Experiments

- Collection The Liquid Crystal Book Series

618 pages, parution le 23/06/2005

Résumé

Liquid crystals allow us to perform experiments that provide insight into fundamental problems of modern physics, such as phase transitions, frustration, elasticity, hydrodynamics, defects, growth phenomena, and optics (linear and nonlinear).

The book is a result of personal research and of the graduate lectures given by the authors at the Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon and the University of Paris VII, respectively. The first part of the book presents historical background, the modern classification of liquid crystals, and mesogenic anatomy; the second part examines liquid crystals with nematic and cholesteric orientational order. Topics include dielectric and magnetic properties, Frederiks transitions and displays, light scattering, flow and electrohydrodynamic instabilities, and surface anchoring transitions, as well as interfaces, equilibrium shapes, and the Mullins-Sekerka instability. Smectic and columnar liquid crystals are covered in more detail by the authors in a separate volume, entitled Smectic and Columnar Liquid Crystals: Concepts and Physical Properties Illustrated by Experiments.

Features

  • Provides an up-to-date text on nematic and cholesteric liquid crystals
  • Includes an extensive analysis of original topics, such as cholesteric Blue Phases, anchoring transitions, and front instabilities
  • Illustrates material throughout with simple experiments, some o| which were performed in class
  • Provides a useful reference intended for advanced undergraduate/graduate students and researchers in liquid crystals, condensed matter physics, and materials science
