Paper Abstract

The frequency dependence of the nonlinear dielectric increment was studied for dilute benzene solutions of nematogenic molecules of different polarity: 4,4'-n- hexylcyanobiphenyl (C6H13-Ph-Ph-CequalsVN, 6CB, (mu) equals 4.8 D) and 4-(trans-4'-n-hexyl- cyclohexyl)isothiocyanatobenzene (C6H13-CyHx-Ph- NequalsCequalsS, 6CHBT, (mu) equals 3.5 D), at 25 degree(s)C. The increment was induced by the quasi-static electric field of high strength (107 V/m) and its relaxation was detected by the alternating field of low intensity (102 V/m) in the frequency range 1 MHz - 3 GHz. The results were discussed in the framework of Coffey's theory.
