Abstract
Possible applications of the novel antiferroelectric/ferroelectric phases exhibited by achiral bent-core mesogens (termed banana phases, B phases, or bow- phases in the literature) are considered. Specifically, in a ferroelectric bow-phase, alignment such that the molecular bow plane of the bent mesogens is parallel to the substrates, anchoring the polarization parallel to the substrates, should afford an ideal geometry for analog `V- shaped switching' devices.
