Abstract

Abstract Cholesterogenic liquid crystals of small pitches usually exhibit two blue phases (BP I and BP II). Only one BP is observed, however, at pitches p close below the critical value p c above which the BP vanishes. By polarising microscopy using a contact preparation it could be shown that the monomorphic BP is of type I.
