*Corresponding author:

Electrically induced azimuthal rotation of periodic structure of linear defects formed within cholesteric layer under planar-conical boundary conditions during relaxation from homeotropic state has been studied. It has been shown that when applying a voltage in the range 0 ≤ U ≤ 1,8 V, the periodic structures oriented at different azimuthal angles (within 90°) depending on the field values can be formed.

Keywords: cholesteric, linear defect, periodic structure, diffraction, surface anchoring, conical boundary conditions, optical texture
