Paper Abstract

The regularities of polarized light scattering by thin layer of nematic liquid crystal (NLC) at different temperatures including frozen state are presented in this work. The direct extinction matrix and matrix of diffusion light scattering of NLC are measured. The symmetry character of given matrixes is defined. It is shown, that both structure and regularities of angular course of nonzero components change depending on orientation angle of NLC director for both matrixes. Most dynamic changes are registered for the angular course of f 12 (f 21) and f 23 ( f 32 )components in the range of large scattering angles, especially when angle of director orientation with respect to the probing beam direction is equal to 45° . For the investigation of different states of NLC director orientation the method of it change in controllable electric field was used. A qualitative relationship between f 44 , f 33 , f 12 f 21 , f 23 (f 32) values and orientation angle of NLC director is defined during the analysis of experimental results.
