Abstract

X-ray diffraction study of smectic-C* layer orientation in surface stabilized cells filled with fluorinated ferroelectric liquid crystals show chevron layer structure. The chevrons remain unperturbed up to a field of 12.5 x 10(6) V/m while optical observations suggest uniform switching at low fields, and nucleation and growth mediated switching at high-field strengths.
