We study ‘Myers effect’ for a bunch of D1-branes with IIB superstrings moving in one direction along the branes. We show that the ‘blown-up’ configuration is the helical D1-brane, which is self-supported from collapse by the axial momentum flow. The tilting angle of the helix is determined by the number of D1-branes. The radius of the helix is stabilized to… (More)
