Chiral phases of liquid crystals.

Chiral nematic phase[edit]

Also known as the cholesteric phase.

Helical twisting power[edit]

The helical twisting power, \beta_M, determines the pitch of the chiral nematic phase produced when a nematic liquid crystal is doped with a low concentration of chiral solute molecules. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]
