    Collisions of an atomic beam of He atoms with the surface of an aligned nematic liquid crystal film (4′-pentyl-4-cyano biphenyl, 5CB) initiate a transient change in the aligmnent of the surface region of the film. The effect is greater when the He atoms approach perpendicular to the...

    The random phase approximation (RPA) is used to calculate the scattering function for multicomponent mixtures of flexible and stiff polymers. These calculations will be useful for the qualitative interpretation of small angle neutron scattering (SANS) data from binary mixtures of polymer liquid...

    The orientational order parameters &Pmarc;[sub 2], &Pmarc;[sub 4], and &Pmarc;[sub 6] have been determined by neutron scattering from a mixture of normal hydrogenous and deuterium labeled molecules in the nematic, smectic A and smectic C phases of the mesogen...

    Grazing incidence x-ray scattering was used to study the structure of films of a room temperature smectic-C[sup *] mixture, deposited on glass substrates, that consisted of gratings with a 9 µm period. There is evidence for the presence of two regions of confinement as function of film...

    The construction and properties of scattering type liquid crystal depolarizers are discussed. The Mueller matrices that describe these devices are measured and compared to ideal depolarizers and ideal linear materials. The present depolarizers do not perform as well as crystal...

    An atomic beam of helium is scattered from the surface of an aligned nematic liquid crystal film (4′-pentyl-4-cyanbo biphenyl, 5CB). Collisions of atoms with the surface initiate a transient loss of order in the film. The magnitude of this change depends on the momentum direction of the...

    We study early stages of spinodal decomposition (SD) in polymer/liquid crystal mixtures by solving linearized time-dependent Landau-Ginzburg equations for concentration (conserved order parameter) and orientation (nonconserved order parameter). We find a new SD process driven by instability of...

    The electro-optical effect of size polydispersity in polymer-dispersed liquid-crystal (PDLC) films is investigated. Liquid crystal (LC) droplets of different sizes require different electric field amplitudes for director reorientation, which will produce a mismatch of effective refractive...
