Alignment of Complex Fluids under Confinement and Flow
Journal de Physique II
We report on a new application of the X-ray Surface Forces Apparatus     (XSFA) to the study of the alignment of complex fluid thin films under confinement and/or flow using synchrotron X-ray scattering. The smectic A liquid crystal 8CB (4-cyano-4 -octylbiphenyl) and the hexagonal phases of a zwitterionic polyisoprene melt and of a lyotropic liquid crystal composed of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), pentanol and water were investigated in the regime where the distances between thedoi:10.1051/jp2:1996218 fatcat:sed4hgtrdngavfjy553vca4o6q
