Fluctuations and nonlinear elasticity of nematic elastomers

Xing, X (Shanghai Jiao Tong University)
Thursday 27 June 2013, 11:00-11:45

Meeting Room 2, CMS


In this talk, I will first discuss how to describe elastic deformations in systems with partial translational orders and orientational orders. I will then discuss how to incorporate the effects of thermal and quenched fluctuations into elasticity theory. Finally I will address the anomalous elasticity of ideal nematic elastomers in presence of thermal as well as quenched fluctuations.
