Nonequilibrium orientational patterns in two-component Langmuir monolayers

A model of a phase-separating two-component Langmuir monolayer in the presence of a photoinduced reaction interconverting two components is formulated. An interplay between phase separation, orientational ordering, and reaction is found to lead to a variety of nonequilibrium self-organized patterns, both stationary and traveling. Examples of the patterns, observed in numerical simulations, include flowing droplets, traveling stripes, wave sources, and vortex defects.
