Abstract
The possibility of appearance of periodic distortions in smectic layers in external intersecting magnetic and electric fields was investigated. A theoretical model of behavior of a smectic liquid crystal (LC) limited by two semi-infinite plates with a weak anchoring energy at boundaries was considered. In this model, the magnetic field directed along sample layers, the electric field directed at angle to x-axis in xOz-plane. A relation for critical values of the magnetic and electric fields, for which the appearance of periodic distortions of smectic layers is possible was obtained.

Keywords: smectic liquid crystal, periodic structures, Euler angles, critical fields
