A periodic stripe pattern is found in the nematic phase close to the smectic phase of photoresponsive achiral liquid-crystalline compounds. The origin of the stripe patterns can be ascribed to an extremely large bent elastic constant K33 . In addition, we succeeded in controlling the pattern by the following two methods: 1) the stripe disappears by a trans-cis photoisomerization upon UV light irradiation and reappears upon light termination, and 2) the stripe pattern is stabilized over the whole nematic phase, at approximately 10 °C, by polymerization of the compounds.
