Paper Abstract

Chiral nematic polar mixtures (7BCB-7CN)-5*CB were investigated by visual and spectrophotometric methods. It was found that these systems have a reverse temperature dependence of selective light reflection. The wavelength of reflected light increased with the temperature increase. The bicomponent mixture containing 5*CB and non-polar 805, showing enhanced A1 phase, had a normal spectral characteristics. The color of reflected light changed from red to blue with temperature increase in the neighborhood of SA1-N* phase transition.
