Abstract

After nearly 20 years of intense research, ferroelectric liquid crystals are now being used in commercial devices. This timely review will consider the structural units and their specific combinations that can be used to generate the required smectic C phase, and provide the necessary physical properties for optimum operation of devices. The design features required to generate the more recent antiferroelectric phase will also be considered.
