We investigate the dynamical properties of normal fluctuation modes in chiral phase liquid crystal on the basis of hydrodynamics Ericksen–Leslie theory. We examine the effect of chiral coefficient on dynamic relaxation eigenfrequencies and the scattering intensity. We find that the chiral coefficient only affects slow fluctuation modes, while it does not affect the fast fluctuation modes. This effect of chirality depends on the magnitude of the wave number vector components.
