Paper Abstract

In the paper investigation of properties of liquid layers by using the m-line spectroscopy method has been presented. This method is generally used for investigation of thin solid layers. The layers are usually deposited by evaporating, diffusion or otherwise. Liquid layers have specific character and make possible dynamical change of some of their properties. Especially waveguide layers of liquid crystal can change their physical properties due to their anisotropy. Possibility of obtaining the great power density of light beam in thin planar waveguide in association with great resistance of isotropic layers provides an interesting opportunity to use it in practice. In this paper study of properties of isotropic and anisotropic compounds by m-line spectroscopy method as well as their dispersion with good accuracy has been presented.
