Paper Abstract

Simple polarization-optical techniques, allowing to reveal the presence in a layer of 1D-inhomogeneous (in the field of optical probing) anisotropic medium such symmetry elements as center of symmetry and symmetry axis parallel to the layer boundaries, are presented. The possibilities of the use of these techniques for observing the configuration of supramolecular structure (SMS) of liquid crystal (LC) in the study of orientation phenomena in liquid crystals are demonstrated with some experimental examples.
