Antiferroelectric liquid crystals are studied using the pyroelecmc technique. The effects of temperature and applied voltage on the pyroelectric signal are examined. The pyroelecmc signal can detect phase changes that occur due to temperature and bias voltage. A high temperature femelecmc phase FiLC is found and the stability of this phase under different bias voltages is examined
