Abstract
The chosen results of investigations of internal and external diffraction maximum, using a transmission beam to freely suspended `thick' and `thin' films of smectic LC, are presented. On the basis of these results the way to the generalization of the Moncton-Pindac method was illustrated. Our generalization of the Moncton-Pindac method can be distinguished from the other methods by study of internal diffraction maximum using reflected (instead of transmission) beam. It is important that the film placed on a heated plate has only one free surface. In commonly used methods, the investigated film has two free surfaces. Some results of diffractometer measurements are presented as examples of studies using the generalized Moncton-Pindac method. Possible experiments using this method, advantages, and inconveniences are discussed.
