Periodic Distortions in Cholesteric Liquid Crystal

  • Jacques Rault

Abstract

Several kinds of periodic patterns appear in liquid crystal submitted to an external field or to hydrodynamic flow. In cholesteric liquid crystal we show that the static deformation of the planar “Grandjean” texture involves mainly a bend-splay deformation, or a bending of the “cholesteric planes”.
