    By photochemically cross linking the molecules of a reactive end group functionalized calamitic liquid crystal (bis(heptylphenyl)-bithiophene-oxetane) in the smectic mesophase, an insoluble rigid molecular network is formed which remains structurally unchanged on cooling to room temperature. The...
