By utilizing our state-of-the-art ac differential free-standing film calorimetric system, three remarkable surface enhanced layer-by-layer transitions in several liquid-crystal compounds have been investigated. Each of these transitions can be well-described by the simple power-law expression: L = Lo t-v. This demonstrates that these surface enhanced transitions occur on the smooth 'substrate' with long-range interactions.
