A method to determine the spatial orientation of the transition dipole moments for ferroelectric liquid-crystal (FLC) molecules in the surface-stabilized FLC states by use of both conventional and oblique polarized infrared spectroscopy is proposed. It is found that the core moiety is tilted by an angle of about 7° to the surface of the cell windows.
