  • Abstract : We analytically and numerically study Order reconstruction (OR) solutions within the Landau-de Gennes theory for nematic liquid crystals in long shallow channel geometries. OR solutions describe liquid crystal polydomains, i.e., subdomains of distinct director orientation separated by domain walls. Such solutions are of interest due to their potential applications in drug delivery technologies and optical devices for instance. We investigate OR solutions in different physical settings: nematic liquid crystals, passive and active nematodynamics, and ferronematics.
