 (kō′lĭ-stĕr′ĭk, kə-lĕs′tə-rĭk)
adj.
Of or relating to the chiral nematic phase of a liquid crystal in which the molecules are closely aligned within a distinct series of layers, with the axes of the molecules lying parallel to the plane of the layers and with the orientation of molecules in adjacent layers rotated slightly.

cholesteric

(ˌkəʊləˈstɛrɪk)
