Abstract

In this paper, a study of the electrically driven turbulent-turbulent transition in a homeotropically oriented nematic sample is reported. The transition has the characteristics of a nucleation process, and its threshold has been experimentally determined. The nucleation rate and the growth velocity of the new turbulent nuclei are also reported.
