Abstract

The optical and dynamic light scattering properties of the nematic phase of an oxazole-derived bent-core liquid crystal were investigated. Homogeneously aligned samples of the material were found to behave like a conventional straight-core nematic. The nematic refractive indices of the oxazole compound was also observed. The light scattering data revealed evidence of weak biaxial fluctuations.
