Abstract: In hexyloxycyanobiphenyl-octyloxycyanobiphenyl (60CB-80CB) binary mixtures displaying reentrant behavior, the smectic elastic constant, B, deviates from a simple power law of the form \(B=B_1(T_{NA}-T)^{\varphi}\) and levels off as \(T \rightarrow T_{NA}\). This behavior is consistent with the Nelson-Toner dislocation-unbinding model of the transition.
