Abstract: A theory is developed of the optical properties of a non-absorbing compensated cholesteric liquid crystal. It is shown that the Mauguin-de Vries equation fails when the pitch becomes very large. Theoretical curves are presented of the dependence of the rotatory power on pitch for different values of the sample thickness. The results are in agreement with the observed variation of the rotatory power of a compensated cholesteric mixture with temperature.
