Transmittance spectra of 5CB and ZLI-6000 coded nematic liquid crystals were acquired in the 12600-22200 cm(-1) region at room temperature. The S-transform was applied to analyze the transmittance signal. Dispersion curves of the birefringence were obtained for 5CB and ZLI-6000 by this analysis and data were fitted to the Cauchy formula whereby the dispersion parameters were extracted. Results are found to be in favorable accordance with the published values.
