Dynamics of orientational phase ordering coupled to elastic degrees of freedom

Abstract

We take Ginzburg-Landau approaches to the dynamics of orientational phase ordering coupled to elastic degrees of freedom. In nematic fluid membranes, subdiffusively slow shape relaxation limits the defect coarsening kinetics. In lamellar binary gels, coarsening is frozen by random stress that acts via a coupling between strain and layer orientation.
