Twist-escaped loops in the liquid crystalline polymer MBBA
Once a weak shear flow is applied on the nematic liquid, there is a sudden and strong increase in the defect density. At a certain shear rate, the equilibrium density is reached after a while through the creation and annihilation of defects. This in-situ observation enables the study of a wide range of dynamic disclination behaviours during shear, such as disclination-joining, loop-contracting, loop-stretching and loop-breaking. The loops in this image result from type 1 disclinations 'escaping'
