Abstract

Phase transition of anisotropic materials is studied in physics, materials science, engineering and biology. However, its dynamical process is still elusive. In this work, we investigate the transition of a liquid crystal from a nematic to a smectic phase. A combination of molecular dynamics simulation and machine learning successfully identifies the formation of pre-transitional local structures that precede critical smectic nuclei.
