Abstract

Employing a straightforward experimental technique, we have investigated the surface tension of various liquid crystal compounds in the smectic-A and smectic-Ad phases. The results clearly demonstrate the significant role of molecular packing in determining the surface tension. a) To whom correspondence should be addressed.
