Abstract

The magnetic-field-induced birefringence in wedged homeotropic ferronematic liquid crystals is studied. Theoretical results for small distortions are obtained in terms of the elastic continuum theory of liquid crystals. The results of birefringence measurements are in good agreement with the predictions of the theory.
