The Effect Of Surfaces On The Orientational Properties and Phase Transitions Peculiarities Of A Nonpolar Smectogen Authors:Yıldız, Sevtap; Zayim, Esra Ozkan; Pekcan, Önder; Özbek, Haluk
Publisher and Date:(World Scientific Publ Co Pte Ltd, 2010)The effect of thin films on the orientational and optical properties of nonpolar monolayer smectogen 4-butoxyphenyl-4'-decyloxybenzoate ((10) over barO (4) over bar) liquid crystal has been studied by polarizing microscopy and high-resolution photon transmission method. The uniform planar textures of (10) over barO (4) over bar on the surfaces coated with WO3 VO2 and WO3-VO2 mixture thin films have been obtained. No significant shifts in the phase transition temperatures to lower values under the ...
