 Abstract    n O p tic a l M e th o d f o r th e D e te r m in a tio n o f th e C h o le s te r ic P itc h in L iq u id C r y s ta ls Preparation of a cholesteric liquid crystalline phase in planar orienting liquid crystal cells exhibits discontinuous colour changes with temperature when viewed between crossed polarizers. The trans­ mission spectra of such a system can be described by a modified de Vries equation, with the bire­ fringence dispersion included in a simplified single-band model. With a suitable choice of the cell gap as compared to the cholesteric pitch, the procedure can be used as a new method to determine the temperature dependence of the cholesteric pitch.
