Successful alignment control of the B4 helical nanofilament assembly in a binary mixture system of bent-shaped and rod-shaped liquid crystals is presented. The aligned nanofilament domains appear as extremely smooth and uniform stripes over millimeters. Second-harmonic generation (SHG) studies including a new technique, interferometric SHG microscopy, reveal that in these aligned domains, polarity from the nucleus and chirality are preserved.
