Fluctuations and nonlinear elasticity of nematic elastomers
Meeting Room 2, CMS
AbstractIn 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.
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
