  2. 2. Structures and Properties of the Chiral Smectic C Liquid Crystal Phases Ferro- and Antiferroelectricity in Soft Matter

    Author : Jan Lagerwall; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ferroelectric liquid crystals; orientational order; smectic layer shrinkage; antiferroelectric liquid crystals; subphase suppression; confinement;

    Abstract : Liquid crystals constitute a form of soft matter possessing lower symmetry than isotropic liquids but higher symmetry than solid crystals. In smectic A and C liquid crystals, the rodlike molecules are arranged in layers and the medium has crystal order in one dimension and liquid order in the other two. READ MORE
