Vadim A. Slavin, Robert A. Pelcovits, George Loriot, Andrew Callan-Jones, David H. Laidlaw Vis 06 Techniques for the Visualization of Topological Defect Behavior in Nematic Liquid Crystals
Liquid crystal basics T long organic molecules; model as rods or ellipsoids Uniaxial nematic Isotropic
P 1/2 Topological defects in nematics: line defects 3 2 1 P 1 3 2 -1/2 core
P +1/2 2D slice of this: defects formed closed loops Defect loops
