Nematic and Cholesteric Liquid Crystals: Concepts and Physical Properties Illustrated by Experiments

Couverture
CRC Press, 28 févr. 2005 - 648 pages
Liquid crystals allow us to perform experiments that provide insight into fundamental problems of modern physics, such as phase transitions, frustration, elasticity, hydrodynamics, defects, growth phenomena, and optics (linear and non linear). This excellent volume meets the need for an up-to-date text on liquid crystals.Nematic and Cholesteric Liq
