The results of experimental studies of thin layers of nematic liquid crystal under the influence of low frequency periodic oscillation (frequency about 100 Hz) are presented in this work. Before reaching the critical impact of the liquid crystal director varies symmetrically with respect to the normal to the cell. Further, when the oscillation amplitude is 0,8 microns, the liquid crystal molecules tilt relative to the normal to the cell while continuing to oscillate. The results of this research can be used in the development of liquid crystal sensors for diagnostics of mechanical displacements.
