Abstract
We present the experimental result of the optical diffraction observation for the light propagation perpendicular to the twist axis in the chiral Sm-C* liquid crystal. We study the polarization features of the diffracted field in the intermediate diffraction regime and present the experimental results of three-times enhancement of femtosecond second harmonic generation observation under the conditions of diffraction in the structure.
