Topological Soft Materials for All-Optic Low Energy Photonics

submitted by: RASEIBoulder
The existing infrastructure for managing the flow of information along the photonic pathways and in our computers is in most segments based on electrically encoded information and the transport of electric charges using the electric force. This process is limiting the speed of signal propagation and is costly in terms of energy dissipation. The predicted worldwide energy consumption of data centers for 2050 is approaching the electric energy generated in the European Union in 2010! It is...

Simulation studies of spherical nanoparticles in mesogenic media

submitted by: icamvid
Matt Glaser, University of Colorado at Boulder Abstract: We describe results from simulations of spherical nanoparticles in a nematogenic solvent consisting of soft spherocylinders. We find that nanoparticles remain well dispersed in the isotropic (low-density) phase of the solvent, but demix into a nanoparticle-poor nematic phase and a nanoparticle-rich isotropic phase at higher pressures. When the nanoparticle-spherocylinder interactions are modified to promote homeotropic anchoring, the...

Molecular dynamics simulation of liquid crystalline polymers: what can be achieved?

submitted by: icamvid
Jaroslav Ilnytskyi, Institute for Condensed Matter Physics Abstract: Polymeric liquid crystals combine the features of both the polymer and liquid crystal. Their fine-tuning is possible on the stage of synthesis which leads to a number of practical applications (high strength plastics, displays, optical data storage). We present some recent results in molecular dynamics simulations of such systems. Liquid crystalline dendrimer is studied in isotropic, nematic and smectic A solvent and we...
