Time-dependent optical response of cholesteric liquid crystals on shear flow in aerodynamic experiment is investigated under different shear stresses for two cases (con-focal and planar initial texture). Short description of two effects and results of spectral and colorimetric measurements are given.

Keywords: cholesteric liquid crystals, shear stress, optical response
