Abstract

We investigated the blue phases (BPs) observed for a bent-core molecule with biaxial nematic (N) phase doped with a small percentage of a highly twisting chiral additive. Employing the biaxial N mesogen as a host material, the observed temperature range of BPI was expanded to several 10 °C.
