Research Pictures

Lu, Chun-Yi David; The applied electric field induces non-uniform salt distribution around the DNA chains. The electric double layer is polarized, which produces extra current within the double layer. Lu, Chun-Yi David; Oily streak line defects of the 8CB close to the smectic- nematic transition. The steady state defect size strongly depends on the temperature and the shear rate.
