Bias field, spectral, and temperature-dependent optical studies on conventional and de Vries type ferroelectric liquid crystals (FLCs) are presented. The mixing of ethanol into de Vries FLCs strongly influences their Sm C* and Sm A* phases, due to the influence on molecular randomization. Such comparative optical studies may be used as an effective tool for the preliminary detection of molecular randomization in addition to other conventional techniques.
