Paper Abstract

Under the influence of a weak electric field the unit cells of the cubic blue phases are continuously deformed. We propose a complete description of this phenomenon, known as electrostriction, within the frame of the standard Landau- Ginzburg-de Gennes theory for cholesteric liquid crystal.
