2014 The topological classification of distortions in ordered media leads naturally to a distinction’between singular distortions (defects) and non singular distortions. However, in cholesteric liquid crystals, where the order parameter contains components with different rigidities, the optically observed distortions present both singular and non singular… CONTINUE READING
