Paper Abstract

The value of (alpha) (parallel) and (alpha) (perpendicular) of liquid crystal molecule can be calculated from refractive indices, density and kA. It is well known that the refractive indices are a function of temperature and light wave length. In this article we verified the influence of the light wave length on the values of polarizability tensor components (alpha) (parallel), (alpha) (perpendicular), of polarizability anisotropy ((alpha) (parallel) - (alpha) (perpendicular)) and of the order parameter S of liquid crystal molecules. The values of order parameter S obtained for CB 6 liquid crystal are identical for all light wave length.
