Abstract : In this paper the structure of a smectic c* liquid crystalline material which can be switched in an electric field is investigated by electron microscopic techniques. Using this method the director field is revealed and typical disclinations observed. Analysis of these features enables the elastic anisotropy of the materiel to be calculated.
