Abstract

In a twisted nematic layer oppositely twisted regions can exist, separated by a disclination line, as demonstrated by the orientation of Williams domains. The disclination line can move under the influence of a magnetic field. Measurements of the velocity as a function of magnetic field strength and sample thickness lead to an estimate of the size of the disclination core. © 1973.
