For instance, a simple twist can be created close to a surface at which the director
is anchored in one direction contained in the plane, for example, along the z axis
of an x-z plane. If the magnetic field is applied along the x axis, the director ...
Generally this requires a fairly strong magnetic field because the process of
rotation of magnetization out of the easy axis results in an increase in the internal
energy, which is called the magnetic anisotropy energy. The measure of the ...
Rotation about a Fixed Axis For rotation about a fixed axis, there is a strong
correlation with straight line motion. The mass is replaced by a "rotational mass"
that depends upon the geometry of the mass (how far it is located from the axis of
