Paper Abstract

The liquid crystals with Cr-SmC-N phases were studied under high pressure by x-ray method. Also intercalated SmC and SmA phases were investigated, relatively strong compressibility of the smectic layers in both phases was found. The columnar mesophases under pressure were studied as well. In hexagonal Dh phase the columnar distance was nearly pressure independent while in rectangular Dr mesophase pressure increases interdigitation of the molecules from neighboring columns.
