Paper Abstract

We study theoretically interaction between the cylindrical particles immersed in a nematic liquid crystal, which is caused by the deformations of the director field. It is found that the orientation of the particles has a considerable influence on the pair interaction potential between them. Cylindrical particles inclined to the director turn out to be attracting on the Yukawa law. This leads to the origin of the cellular texture in the ferronematics in the presence of the external magnetic field.
