INFLUENCE OF THE ELECTRIC-FIELD ON EDGE DISLOCATIONS IN SMECTICS

Author(s): HOLYST, R and OSWALD, P
Title: INFLUENCE OF THE ELECTRIC-FIELD ON EDGE DISLOCATIONS IN SMECTICS
Abstract: The electric field applied perpendicularly to smectic layers breaks the symmetry of the system. Consequently, the elastic energy with distortions induced by an edge dislocation diverges with the size of the system. In freely suspended smectic the dislocations in the absence of the electric field are located in the middle of the film. The electric field, E, above a critical value, E(c), can shift them towards the surface. This field (in Gauss cgs units) is given by the following
