Abstract
There exist many studies for measuring the viscoelastic properties with the Frederiks transition of nematic liquid crystal sin an external field. It usually needs to measure the threshold field before measuring the viscoelastic properties. This study introduces the method of measuring the scattering of nematic liquid crystals with evanescent-wave to get the threshold field since it can make sure the anchoring condition. The result for the elastic constants and twist viscosity (gamma) are reported and compared with the data from the liquid crystals supplier.
