We study dynamical processes in a multi-domain (MD) structured nematic liquid crystal cell with a particular emphasis on the motion, creation and annihilation of disclina-tions. In the MD cell right-and left-handed director helices alternate due to a special choice of the director pretilt angles at the surfaces. As a result, a net of twist disclinations… CONTINUE READING
