Paper Abstract

The Maier Saupe theory for liquid crystals is extended to calculate the degree of polar and axial order, obtained during poling by an electric field of π conjugated acceptor-donor molecules in a liquid crystalline phase. Applications of the theory are in the field of non-linear optical materials.
