Tubular crystals, two-dimensional lattices wrapped into cylindrical topologies, arise in many contexts, including botany and biofilaments, and in physical systems such as carbon nanotubes. The geometrical principles of botanical phyllotaxis, describing the spiral packings on cylinders commonly found in nature, have found application in all these systems. Several recent studies have examined defects in tubular crystals associated with crystalline packings that must accommodate a fixed tube… Expand
Shape multistability in flexible tubular crystals through interactions of mobile dislocations
We study avenues to shape multistability and shape-morphing in flexible crystalline membranes of cylindrical topology, enabled by glide mobility of dislocations. Using computational modeling, weExpand
Dislocation mechanisms in the plastic deformation of monodisperse wet foams within an expansion-contraction microfluidic geometry.
Densely packed wet foam was subjected to gradual expansion and contraction in a wide microfluidic channel to study localized plastic deformation events within the monodisperse bubble matrix to study dislocation mobility and plasticDeformation. Expand
Static and dynamic triangular tilings in locally cylindrical geometries
Phyllotaxis, the regular arrangement of leaves or other lateral organs in plants including pineapples, sunflowers and some cacti, has attracted scientific interest for centuries. More recently, thereExpand
Controlling Defects in Nematic and Smectic Liquid Crystals Through Boundary Geometry
Liquid crystals (LCs), presently the basis of the dominant electronics display technology, also hold immense potential for the design of new self-assembling, self-healing, and "smart" responsiveExpand
Defect formation dynamics in curved elastic surface crystals.
This work uses recent experimentally confirmed theory to investigate topological defect formation in curved elastic surface crystals formed by stress-quenching a bilayer material and finds that the defect densities follow KZ-type power laws. Expand
Kibble-Zurek mechanism in curved elastic surface crystals
Topological defects shape the material and transport properties of physical systems. Examples range from vortex lines in quantum superfluids, defect-mediated buckling of graphene, and grainExpand
Non-Equilibrium Self-Assembly of Monocomponent and Multicomponent Tubular Structures in Rotating Fluids.
When suspended in a denser rotating fluid, lighter particles experience a cylindrically symmetric confining potential that drives their crystallization into either monocomponent or unprecedentedExpand
Convergence in a disk stacking model on the cylinder
Abstract We study an iterative process modeling growth of phyllotactic patterns, wherein disks are added one by one on the surface of a cylinder, on top of an existing set of disks, as low asExpand
Simulation and observation of line-slip structures in columnar structures of soft spheres.
We present the computed phase diagram of columnar structures of soft spheres under pressure, of which the main feature is the appearance and disappearance of line slips, the shearing of adjacentExpand
Buckling and metastability in membranes with dilation arrays.
This work explores the buckling of both isolated dilations and dilation arrays at zero temperature, guided by analogies with Ising antiferromagnets, and conjecture ground states for systems with triangular and square impurity superlattices. Expand
