Using Monte Carlo simulation, we analyse the behaviour of two-dimensional hard rods in four different types of geometric confinement: (i) a slit pore where the particles are confined between two parallel walls with homeotropic anchoring; (ii) a hybrid slit pore formed by a planar and a homeotropic wall; square cavities that frustrate the orientational order by imposing either (iii) homeotropic or (iv) planar wall anchoring. We present results for the state diagram as a function of the packingdoi:10.1063/1.4919307 pmid:25956110 fatcat:vm4xreevizcx7hgzketz54zkxq
