Paper Abstract

The measurements described in this paper were carried out in smectic A and C phases of the chiral mixture named W98a. The results of measurements of the tilt angle and the electric permittivity were used to determine the components of the dielectric tensor as function of temperature. The values of the electric anisotropy (Delta) (epsilon) enable us to discuss dielectric torque (Gamma) D and its changes caused by temperature and frequency.
