The Frank twist elastic constant of an achiral liquid-crystal fluid from orientational perturbations


The Frank twist elastic constant is calculated through the use of a novel orientational perturbation method. By measurement of a system's energetic response to external twist deformation of its director field, the relationship... [ view full abstract ]
