The infrared absorption spectra of 2-[4-( N -dodecanoylamino)phenyl]-5-(4-nitrophenyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole (also denoted AF51) in solution and in the solid state as well as the solid-state Raman spectrum of the powdered compound are compared with the infrared linear dichroic (LD) spectra recorded at two orthogonal polarizations. The IR-LD spectra were measured in an anisotropic solvent—the nematic liquid crystal ZLI-1695 (Merck). The solvent spectrum taken under precisely the same experimental conditions and polarized radiation azimuths was subtracted from the polarized sample spectra in order to achieve pure oriented spectra of the compound studied. These spectra were further processed using a stepwise reduction procedure that allows for assignment of vibrational modes having mutually orthogonal dipole moments.

    This work proposes two mechanisms for switching the direction of stripes in cholesteric liquid crystal (CLC) gratings. The stripe direction depends on the ratio of cell gap to the natural pitch length (d/P0) of a CLC sample. Electrical switching is based on the different pitches at the planar...
