dc.description.abstractDifferential optical reflectivity (DOR) was used to study the temperature dependence of the short helical pitch in freestanding films of a liquid crystal compound. The experimentally measured DOR signal was fitted using Berreman's 4?4 matrix method to get the pitch value in the smectic-C (SmC) phase. The results show continuous evolution of the pitch between the smectic-C* and SmC phases. In SmC, the pitch decreases as temperature increases and is found to level off at 16?1 smectic layers at the SmC to smectic-A* transition.en
