Abstract: A ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) material in surface stabilized geometry has been characterized by polarized optical microscopic technique and detailed study of temperature dependent spontaneous polarization (PS) and tilt angle ( θ) have been carried out. The tilt angle ( θ) has been measured in a newly developed electro-optic method. The coupling coefficient between molecular polarization (PS) and tilt ( θ) has been determined in accordance with extended Landau theory.
