Peculiarity of the interaction of small particles in smectic liquid crystals.

Abstract

We investigate the peculiarity of the interaction between particles immersed into a smectic liquid crystal with a layered structure. Such a structure of a liquid crystal imposes restrictions on possible deformations of the layer displacement field. Previous studies neglect this fact and give improper results for the interaction potential within one… (More)
