Pure and Applied Focal Conics
Meeting Room 2, CMS
AbstractThe epitaxial assembly of toric focal conic domain (TFCD) arrays of smectic-A liquid crystals onto pillar arrays is studied. The 3D nature of the pillar array is crucial to confine and direct the formation of TFCDs on the top of each pillar and between neighboring pillars, leading to highly ordered square and hexagonal array TFCDs persisting deeply into the bulk.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
