Abstract
We measured the first and the higher order Bragg peaks corresponding to the layer thickness in the SmC and SmCA phases by X-ray diffraction, and calculated the smectic order parameters of the two phases. We found that the smectic layer in the SmCA phase is much more ordered than that in the SmC phase.
