Deformation of Cholesteric Liquid Crystal Tactoids with a Free Boundary

Downey, Eoghan B.


  • Chirality is a common property of all kinds of materials from liquid crystals to polymers of particular interest is how the chirality of a mesogenic unit imprints itself upon the higher order structures. For example, chiral polymers may form gyroid phases. Here we examine the problem of determining the shape of a droplet of chiral fluid: a cholesteric liquid crystal. We determine equilibrium ... read more
