Paper Abstract

The development of a stable self-oscillatory system based on the alignment response times of liquid crystals is reported. A simple phenomenological mathematical model has been developed and solved numerically which produces results in accord with the observations, namely that the frequency of oscillation increases as the temperature increases. The model is extended and solved numerically to describe a mixture of two liquid crystal species.
