dc.description.abstractMicrobeam resonant x-ray scattering experiments recently revealed the sequential emergence of electric- field-induced subphases (stable states) with exceptionally large unit cells consisting of 12 and 15 smectic layers. We explain the emergence of the field-induced subphases by the quasimolecular model based on the Emelyanenko-Osipov long-range interlayer interactions (LRILIs) together with our primitive way of understanding the frustration in clinicity using the q E number defined as q E =| [ R ] − [ L ] | / ([ R ] + [ L ]); here [ R ] and [ L ] refer to the numbers of smectic layers with directors tilted to the right and to the left, respectively, in the unit cell of a field-induced subphase. We show that the model actually stabilizes the field-induced subphases with characteristic composite unit cells consisting of several blocks, each of which is originally a ferrielectric three-layer unit cell stabilized by the LRILIs, but some of which would be modified to become ferroelectric by an applied electric field. In a similar line of thought, we also try to understand the puzzling electric-field-induced birefringence data in terms of the LRILIs.en
