Reviev of the one-dimensional deformations in nematic layers

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


The elastic deformations induced by electric field in nematic layers were simulated numerically by minimizing the free energy in the course of an iterative process. The director distribution and the development of the deformation is presented for various nematic systems ranging from the Frederiks transition to the deformation of the assymetrically aligned and weakly anchored layer.
