Refractive index measurements of polymer liquid crystals in the nematic phase are described. The technique used makes use of the birefringence to generate interference between the extraordinary and ordinary waves created after an incident plane polarized wave enters the crystal. The procedures are used to measure the ordinary and extraordinary refractive indices n o and n e , respectively, of nematic solutions of the rodlike poly(p-phenylenebenzobisthiazole) (PBT) for wavelengths from the… Expand
