Abstract

A number of new states of matter have been reported in recent years for liquid crystal dimers, most notably the twist-bend nematic phase which exhibits spontaneous breaking of symmetry through the emergence of chiral structures in an achiral fluid. In this communication we report on an unsymmetrical liquid crystal dimer that exhibits a transition from the spontaneously chiral twist-bend nematic phase into a novel smectic liquid crystal phase.
