Catastrophes And Nonlinear Dynamics In The Standard Geometry Of Optically Induced Reorientation Of Nematic Liquid Crystals
Abbreviated Journal Title
Discontinuities and hysteresis have been observed when controlling the orientation state of a nematic liquid crystal (NLC) with a single laser beam in standard geometry: the light beam of extraordinary polarization interacts with a homogeneously oriented NLC. In a certain range of control parameters (light intensity and incidence angle), the system exhibits a new phenomenon of nonlinear dynamics. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
