Weak anchoring effects in ferronematic systems

Burylov, S.V., Zadorozhnii, V.I., Pinkevich, I.P., Reshetnyak, V.Y. and Sluckin, T.J. (2002) Weak anchoring effects in ferronematic systems Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials, 252, pp. 153-155. (doi:10.1016/S0304-8853(02)00619-4).

Record type: Article


We study the magnetically induced behaviour of a ferronematic cell with finite anchoring energy at the cell surfaces. We calculate the dependence of orientational and concentration profiles on the magnetic field, the director anchoring energy, and the cell thickness. We find a new intermediate thickness high field state, in which there is no ferroparticle segregation and a highly ordered director field. This contrasts with previous work in which only a restricted set of system parameters and strong anchoring at the cell surfaces were considered.
