Optical Shaping of Structural Self-Oraganization and Topology in Soft Matter.
The study of liquid crystals has brought about many advances and innovations, not only in technology, but also in our basic understanding of the world around us. For example, recent explorations of photo-induced defects and colloidal clusters in chiral nematics reveal topologically nontrivial forms...
