Abstract

In this work, the effect of YBa2Cu3O7-x complex compound thin films on the morphological, thermotropical, optical and orientational properties of smectic liquid crystals have been studied. The peculiarities of surface-induced textures and dynamics of their temperature transformations have been investigated. Stable, homogeneous and reproducible oriented textures of smectic liquid crystals have been obtained.
