Self-assembly of Freely-rotating Polydisperse Cuboids: Unveiling the Boundaries of the Biaxial Nematic Phase

22 Mar 2020 Rafael Effran Mirzad Corbett Daniel Cuetos Alejandro Patti Alessandro

Colloidal cuboids have the potential to self-assemble into biaxial liquid crystal phases, which exhibit two independent optical axes. Over the last few decades, several theoretical works predicted the existence of a wide region of the phase diagram where the biaxial nematic phase would be stable, but imposed rather strong constraints on the particle rotational degrees of freedom...
