Conduction Currents Associated with the Variable Grating Modes in Nematic Liquid Crystals
Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) instabilities in nematic liquid crystals (NLC) induced by dc or low-frequency excitation are of several kinds. The earliest discovered1, and perhaps most widely known, is the turbulent mode, known in recent years as Dynamic Scattering (DSM)2.
