In this paper, thermo optical properties of nematic liquid crystal: N-4-methoxybenzylidene-4-butylaniline (MBBA) has been investigated by means of applying Image analysis technique in conjunction with Polarizing Optical Microscope. Textures of liquid crystal complexes are captured. The changes in textural features as a function of temperature are useful to compute the thermo optical properties. These microscopic textures are analyzed using MATLAB software. The investigated thermo optical parameters are optical transmission, Absorption coefficient, Phase retardation, birefringence and order parameter. Experimentally, this is a simple technique to observe the behavior of the optical parameters of different liquid crystals as a function of temperature.
