16.The characteristic length derived from the equilibrium equations [Ref. 13, Eq. (3)] is where the electric displacement D is constant across the cell. The local electric field E varies with the molecular orientation, but the average field across the cell is given approximately by at high fields. In the present discussion E should be interpreted as the average field

Berreman and Heffner observed the related asymmetric bistable horizontal states in a cholesteric‐doped nematic with 180° twist. For good optical contrast using birefringence effects, the twist of the present cells should be near 45°.
