Abstract

We present a theoretical investigation of the director orientation induced by an electric field in a wedge of smectic C liquid crystal. A complex coupling exists between the liquid crystal and the field and we have incorporated this feature in this problem. The coupling behaviour between the electric field and the liquid crystal has a noticeable impact on the orientation. Numerical results for the director orientation and the influenced electric field are presented.
