Abstract

We perform molecular dynamics simulations using a simple model system of liquid crystal substance on air-water interface. A system of soft spherocylinders, which do not show smectic C phase in bulk, exhibits a tilted smectic phase when interacting with a model water plane. We observe not only macroscopic properties such, as the pressure-surface area curve, but also correlation functions and diffusions as well.
