Paper Abstract

The symmetry arguments that predict the existence of ferroelectricity in chiral smectic liquid crystals are presented. The structures of the ferroelectric liquid crystals in the thin and the thick cell configurations are reviewed. The techniques to align these liquid crystals are briefly described. Finally, the effect of electric fields on these liquid crystals is discussed.
