抄録

The phenomena of wetting of a spherical particle by a nematic liquid crystal was studied. The investigation is based on Landau-de Gennes free energy formulated in terms of second-rank nematic order parameter. It was observed that the prewetting line ends at a critical point. It was found that the splay deformations around the particle significantly influence nematic wetting of curved surfaces.
