Discussion

This article describes equilibrium positions of colloidal particles and their companion defects in a nematic liquid crystal. It presents experimental observations of colloidal particles contained within nematic drops along with a qualitative explanation of the observed features. After that, it gives a detailed theoretical description of the system, which the authors claim can be readily extended to describe colloidal interactions within other anisotropic fluids.
