Abstract
The photorefractive effect of smectic liquid crystal blends containing small amounts of a chiral compound was investigated. Photorefractive ferroelectric liquid crystal blends, composed of smectic-C liquid crystals, photoconductive chiral compounds and a sensitizer, are known to exhibit a large photorefractive effect. Smectic liquid crystal blends containing various concentrations of a chiral compound while keeping a constant concentration of photoconductive moiety were prepared. The effect of the concentration of the chiral compound on the photorefractive properties of the liquid crystal blend was investigated.
