Fluids at Brown, Division of Applied Mathematics Fluids and Thermal Sciences, School of Engineering Joint Seminar Series

Tuesday, February 20, 2018 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Barus and Holley, Room 190

Change in stripes for cholesteric shells via anchoring in moderation Lisa Tran University of Pennsylvania Chirality, ubiquitous in complex biological systems, can be controlled and quantified in synthetic materials such as cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) systems. In this talk, I will present my recent study of spherical shells of CLC under weak anchoring conditions. Anchoring transitions are induced at the inner and outer boundaries by changing the surfactant concentration in the surrounding water phase.
