Journal Article
Younger, D., Matranga, M. A., Costello, B. D. L., Kitson, S., Adamatzky, A., & de Lacy Costello, B. (2011). Computing with liquid crystal fingers: Models of geometric and logical computation. Physical Review E, 84(6), https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevE.84.061702

When a voltage is applied across a thin layer of cholesteric liquid crystal, fingers of cholesteric alignment can form and propagate in the layer. In computer simulation, based on experimental laboratory results, we demonstrate that these cholesteric...
