Abstract

A phenomenological model of photo-induced wave propagation in liquid-crystalline Langmuir monolayers is constructed. The effects of the spontaneous splay deformation of liquid crystal order and the anisotropic photo-excitation of molecules are taken into consideration in this model. Most of qualitative features of the phenomenon are successfully explained by numerical simulations and theoretical analyses of the model.
