Abstract

An extremely sensitive measuring system has been developed to obtain simultaneously heat capacity and optical reflectivity data from thin free-standing liquid crystal films. Results from 3(10)OBC near the smectic A to hexatic B transition will be reported and discussed in the context of recent theory regarding phase transitions in two dimensions.
