Similarities and differences between the effects of orientation of red blood cells in a nematic liquid-crystal medium and the Fröhlich electrical vibrations

  • N. V. Kamanina


A qualitative explanation is given for the effect wherein red blood cells are oriented in a nonlinear liquid-crystal medium, and it is shown that it is different from the Fröhlich interaction for living biological systems.
