Paper Abstract

Optical second harmonic generation can be used to probe a number of important properties of liquid crystals, including polar ordering, orientation of molecules in monolayers, and the in-plane symmetry of the molecular arrangement at various interfaces. We have used second harmonic generation to investigate the effects of liquid crystal/substrate interactions on the alignment of bulk liquid crystal.
