Abstract

A new electromechanical effect has been found in planar oriented chiral smectic C* liquid crystals under the influence of an applied alternating electric field. Apart from the well-known electrooptical effects a mechanical vibration has been observed in a direction parallel to the smectic layers and perpendicular to the electric field.
