Electric-field-induced transport of microspheres in the isotropic and chiral nematic phase of liquid crystals.

Abstract

The application of an electric field to microspheres suspended in a liquid crystal causes particle translation in a plane perpendicular to the applied field direction. Depending on applied electric field amplitude and frequency, a wealth of different motion modes may be observed above a threshold, which can lead to linear, circular, or random particle… (More)
