Paper Abstract

Long-range orientational order of four nematogenic liquid crystals has been determined on the basis of the optical birefringence, the dielectric anisotropy, and the polarized absorption spectra of the dichroic dye dissolved in the liquid crystalline host. The values of the order parameters obtained by using various experimental methods have been compared with those obtained from the Maier-Saupe mean field theory.
