Abstract
According to the papers, liquid crystalline mixtures of achiral mesogen matrix and chiral mesogen additive area of great interest for the investigations of structural and physical properties of twist-grain-boundary (TGB) phases. Such systems allow studying the changes of the structure and properties of TGB phases resulting from the difference in the chiral additive concentration. We used liquid crystalline systems, polymorphism, structure and some physical properties of which had been investigated earlier. Of particular interest was to investigate selective reflection spectra and optical activity of helical smectic A (SmA*) in comparison with the same properties of the neighboring mesophases--a chiral nematic liquid crystal (N*) and a smectic C (SmC*)--with the different temperatures and chiral agent's concentrations. A comparative analysis of obtained spectral and optical characteristics of described mesophases and some conclusions on the peculiarities of the packing structure of these phases have been made in this paper.
