Theoretical analysis of shaping NLC layer on the surface bearing energy pattern is presented. On the basis of the balance of surface energy and layer elasticity of elongation energy the form of the layer surface is determined. The interference picture on the layer thickness and shape is analyzed. By means of mathematical methods of communication theory the surface information bulk is achieved where the layer is considered as the communication channel to transfer the energy pattern from the substrate. In the course the thermal noise is taken into account. On that basis the limit spatial resolution of the layer and the method sensibility is determined.
