Solitons in liquid crystals

Author: Lui Lam; Jacques Prost

Series: Partially ordered systems.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Solitons are a well-known and intriguing aspect of nonlinear behavior in a continuous system such as a fluid: a wave propagates through the medium without distortion. Liquid crystals are highly ordered systems without a rigid, long-range structure. Solitons in liquid crystals (sometimes referred to as "walls") have a wide variety of remarkable properties that are becoming important for practical applications such as  Read more...
