LCOptimizer
 
Introduction LCOptimizer logo
LCOptimizer is a realization of algorithm for calculation of nematic and cholesteric LC structure in PDLC droplets. The algorithm is based on Frank elastic energy approximation, and is modified to include description of linear and point defects. The paper describing the algorithm is under work now.

Availability: please contact Vladimir Rudyak to get the latest version
 
 
 
The package
Current version of LCOptimizer software consists of the following units:  
- lcgeo3 -- prepares input file from triangulation of the system boundaries
- lcdis3 -- quick change of external field, surface tension or director field distribution in already prepared input file
- lcopttest3 -- optimizes routine parameters for Monte-Carlo procedure
- lcopt3ga-sea -- run Monte-Carlo optimization of director field distribution on GPU
- lchelix3 -- calculates helical pitch distribution for an optimied structure
- lcdrawer3.3 -- Windows-based OpenGL viewer for optimized structures
