Abstract

We have used optical second-harmonic generation and infrared-visible sum-frequency generation to study liquid-crystal monolayers on clean glass and on surfactant-treated glass. The results provide insight into the competing effects of polar adsorption sites and surfactant alkyl chains in aligning the bulk liquid crystal.
