  • Article

In the framework of molecular-statistical theory the causes of spontaneous polarization in synclinic and anticlinic smectic liquid crystals are discussed. The effect of the interaction of molecules, of external electric field and of the bent of molecules on the magnitude of the polarization are studied.
