The latter is an anisotropic fluid phase between the crystalline and the isotropic liquid phase. FA is found to be finite within the hexatic phase, takes the value 72∕π at the hexatic↔isotropic liquid phase transition, and diverges at the hexatic↔crystal transition as predicted by the Kosterlitz-Thouless-Halperin-Nelson-Young theory. This is a quantitative test of the mechanism of breaking the orientational symmetry by disclination unbinding.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2012-01-18T10:57:25Z</dc:date> <dcterms:issued>2007</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
