By Johanna. R Bruckner

during this thesis Johanna Bruckner studies the invention of the lyotropic counterpart of the thermotropic SmC* section, which has turn into recognized because the merely spontaneously polarized, ferroelectric fluid in nature. through polarizing optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and electro-optic experiments she firmly establishes elements of the constitution of the radical lyotropic liquid crystalline part and elucidates its interesting houses, between them a mentioned polar electro-optic impression, analogous to the ferroelectric switching of its thermotropic counterpart. The helical floor country of the mesophase increases the elemental query of ways chiral interactions are "communicated" throughout layers of roughly disordered and achiral solvent molecules that are situated among adjoining bi-layers of the chiral amphiphile molecules. This thesis bridges an enormous hole among thermotropic and lyotropic liquid crystals and pioneers a brand new box of liquid crystal research.
