Description/Abstract

Nematic cyanobiphenyl dimers have been found to exhibit a
strong flexoelectric coupling, whose molecular origin is not
obvious; we can explain such behaviour and clearly identify the
role of different molecular features using a computational
approach which combines a molecular level model and the
elastic continuum theory.
