Title: Theory of liquid crystalline phases in biaxial systems
Issue Date: 1992 Zeitschriftenartikel Molecular crystals and liquid crystals science and technology, A 212 (1992), S. 115-124. URL
Abstract: General properties of SO(3) - symmetric free- energy expansion for biaxial systems are studied. In particular, all invariants in powers of a traceless and symmetric quadrupole tensor order parameter and a vector order parameter are identified and their relation to possible local structures are found. A new class of polar, chiral biaxial phases are predicted.
