ORDERING OF SMECTIC LIQUID-CRYSTALS AT SURFACES

Title: ORDERING OF SMECTIC LIQUID-CRYSTALS AT SURFACES
Abstract: It is argued that an enhancement of the surface hexatic in-plane is due to the quench of the out-of-plane surface-layer It is shown that the layer-by-layer freezing phase transition) in freely suspended liquid-crystal can be induced by the layer fluctuation profile. The obtained relating transition temperatures to the bend elasticity and the tension can be also applied to monolayers undergoing liquid-hexatic phase transition on liquid or liquid-crystal surfaces.
