Paper Abstract

A deuteron NMR study of the 8CB liquid crystal confined to the controlled pore glass matrix is presented. The theoretical analysis based on the phenomenological Landau - de Gennes type description predicts a strong influence of the pore curvature on the confined 8CB smectic ordering and almost none on its nematic ordering, in good agreement with experiment.
