Focal Conic Flower Textures at Curved Interfaces
PHYSICAL REVIEW X, pp. 0410262013.
Focal conic domains (FCDs) in smectic-A liquid crystals have drawn much attention, both for their exquisitely structured internal form and for their ability to direct the assembly of micromaterials and nanomaterials in a variety of patterns. A key to directing FCD assembly is control over the eccentricity of the domain. Here, we demonstra...More
