AbstractObservations that the free surface of liquid crystals sometimes break up into a pattern of regularly spaced domains are explained as originating from surface polarity. Linear coupling to the surface polarity demands some splay deformation and under appropriate conditions, this will require disclinations. Similar effects may occur with biological membranes.
