Paper Abstract

Anchoring phenomena and their effect on focal conic domain (FCD) instabilities in the smectic A phase were studied for two different geometries: (a) field-driven nucleation of FCDs in a homeotropic cell and (b) anchoring-driven transition in a planar cell from field-induced homeotropic state.
