Abstract

The model of a spatially restricted liquid-crystal system with microscopic impurities homogeneously distributed in the system is considered. The thermodynamic correlations of the director-orientation fluctuations and the correlations of the scalar order parameter characterizing impurities in the system are investigated for this system.
It is shown that the impurity correlations are weaker than in a pure isotropic liquid. The correlations in the director deviations depend essentially on the wavevector and can be substantially weakened in the presence of impurities.
