Paper Abstract

The orientation of the molecular tilt plane and the bond net of several hexatic liquid crystals can be characterized by phase angles neglecting disturbances of the order parameter amplitudes. We investigate the dielectric response due to fluctuations of the phase angles. For a thin cell with unwound director helix two relaxation modes are predicted.
