Abstract

YEDNAK, C.A.R.; LENZI, E.K.  and  EVANGELISTA, L.R.. Director profile of a nematic between two concentric cylinders with inhomogeneous boundary conditions. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2009, vol.39, n.2, pp.312-317. ISSN 0103-9733.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332009000300013.

The tilt angle profile in a nematic cell limited by two concentric cylindrical surfaces with inhomogeneous distribution of easy axes is investigated in the one-constant approximation. The results are presented in terms of the Green function approach by considering the strong anchoring case and the presence of an external electric field for small distortions.

Keywords : Liquid crystal; Nematic; Strong anchoring.
