Non-chiral ferroelectric smectic-C films
PACS: 61.30.Eb, 64.70.Md, 68.10.Cr
Free standing films of non-chiral liquid crystal compound have been studied by optical-reflectivity measurements. In the temperature range above the smectic-C smectic-A bulk transition the existence of macroscopic ferroelectric properties and orientation of the tilt plane parallel to an electric field is demonstrated.
