Schematic examples of the four categories of OD structures consisting of more than one kind of layer (perpendicular to the plane of the drawing). Equivalent OD layers are represented by equivalent symbolic figures. (a) Category I – three kinds of OD layers: one kind (L_{2+5n}) is nonpolar, the remaining two are polar. One and only one kind of nonpolar layer is possible in this category. (b) Category II – three kinds of polar OD layers; their triples are polar and retain their sense of polarity in the stacking direction. (c) Category III – three kinds of polar OD layers; their triples are polar and regularly change their sense of polarity in the stacking direction. (d) Category IV – three kinds of OD layers: two kinds are nonpolar (L_{1 + 4n} and L_{3 + 4n}), one kind is polar. Two and only two kinds of nonpolar layers are possible in this category. The position of ρ planes is indicated.
