Paper Abstract

Using the dielectric spectroscopy in the frequency range I Hz to iO Hz the dielectric response of a suitable characterized (DSC, polarizing microscopy, X-ray diffraction) oriented film of a poly-[4-(4- Methacryloyloxybutoxy)-4'-nitrostilbene] could be detected. The relaxation in parallel alignment is interpreted as a s-process equivalent to the molecular reorientation process around the mesogen's short axis. The perpendicular alignment allows to detect dipole relaxation processes resulting from motions around the mesogen's long axis. A perfect alignment could be obtained in a strong magnetic field of 7 T. Using this method an oligomer with a molar weight of 2900 g/mol showed a completely transparent film of 75 tm thickness. The problems of chemical synthesis as well as a model for a molecular association are discussed.
