Abstract

Using X-ray diffraction at glancing angles, we find that in Langmuir-Blodgett films of lead stearate the lead atoms form plane arrays identical to one set of planes in a bulk crystal, but with little correlation between the planes. The resulting system of two-dimensional layers is similar in its static structure to an ideal smectic-B liquid crystal.
