Abstract

The conductivity and fluctuations of injected electric power with main focus on defect turbulence, anisotropic turbulence (DSM1) and isotropic turbulence (DSM2) in nematic liquid crystal was investigated. The fluctuations of injected electric power were defined in terms of conductive and dielectric regime of convection during electroconvection of liquid crystals. The observed fluctuations were found to obey same universal non-Gaussian statistics. The differences in electric properties between conductive and EHC were related to normalized standard deviation, spectra and probability density distribution.
