  The first book of its kind to introduce the fundamentals, basic features and models, potential applications and novel phenomena and its important applications in liquid crystal technology. Recognized leader in the field Gaetano Assanto outlines the peculiar characteristics of nematicons and the promise they have for the future growth of this captivating new : Gaetano Assanto. This chapter discusses several related concepts of optical solitons. The nonlinear effects in liquid crystals arise mainly from thermal and reorientation processes. While the thermal effects are similar to those observed in other materials,the reorientation effect is a unique characteristic of the liquid-crystalline phase. Abstract. Reorientational phenomenon in liquid crystals is unique for nonlinear optics applications. Recently there have been shown that the reorientational nonlinearity in nematic liquid crystals can govern spatial solitons in both waveguide and bulk geometry.   Note that the steady state o is actually unstable, while the By state is stable. The soliton in Fig. 2 is a traveling front. The first paper [12] on the subject of solitons in liquid crystals was published 25 years ago. Developments in the field up to are summarized in the book Solitons in Liquid Crystals .

from book Soliton-driven Photonics Recently there have been shown that the reorientational nonlinearity in nematic liquid crystals can govern spatial solitons in both waveguide and bulk. This is a new and greatly revised edition of Professor Chandrasekhar's classic book Liquid Crystals, first published in The subject of liquid crystals has grown into an exciting interdisciplinary research field with important practical applications. This book presents a systematic and self-contained treatment of the physics of the different types of thermotropic liquid crystals - the. The book will be useful for experienced researchers as well as students and those who want to enter the field. Apart from the fact that such a publication covers a gap in the literature, there is also a personal actuality.
