FIG. 1.

Polarizing microscopy for the solitary wave in a SSFLC; (b) the picture was taken after taking (a), the schematics for the solitary wave and the up/down domains and boundary (c). The directors can move on a cone, which is the necessary condition that the layer thickness does not change during switching. Smectic layers are perpendicular to the glass plates.

FIG. 2.

Velocity of the solitary wave for various conditions of the alignment layers. was measured for various temperatures for the SR-SR cell and at for the other cells.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Optical transmittance vs applied field using triangular shape signal under the cross polarizers (a), where the position of the cell with the crossed polarizers is controlled to have the symmetric transmittance curve, and as a function of the frequency of the applied field (b) for SR-NR cell at . (c) shows of Felix0018 and as a function of temperature for the various cell condition at .
