Abstract
We discuss the conditions under which the electric fields produced by polarization space charge need to be included in calculating the response of ferroelectric liquid crystals to applied electric fields. We present a simple example to illustrate the basic physical effect of polarization space charge and apply the result to geometries of electro-optic interest.
