ABSTRACT:  The cholesteric mesophase of poly(γ-benzyl L-gultamate) in concentrated solutions of helicogenic solvents was investigated by the laser-light scattering technique. The observed, elastic scattering intensity distributions are theoretically explained in terms of the cholesteric domains embedded in an optically active medium. Analysis of the scattering patterns provides information on the identity period and sense of the cholesteric twisting.
