Modeling liquid crystal films on nanoscale Kondic, Lou
This talk will focus on recently developed models and computational techniques for thin films, with focus on nematic liquid crystal films.Ã Â Models and computations are developed within the framework of long wave approach, augmented by inclusion of liquid-solid interactionÃ Â forces via disjoining pressure model.Ã Â A particular aspect that will be discussed is the inclusion of the liquid-crystalline nature of theÃ Â film into the model in a tractable manner. The simulation techniques include algorithms for GPU computing that allow for simulations of largeÃ Â domainsÃ Â and analysis of various instability mechanisms.
