Paper Abstract

Binary mixtures of achiral liquid-crystalline copper complexes with a chiral nonmesomorphic dopant were prepared. The achiral copper complexes incorporating Schiff's base ligands show enantiotropic smectic C and smectic A mesophases. A study of the ferroelectric properties of these materials was performed. The spontaneous polarization PS and the switching time were determined by means of the polarization reversal method. The dielectric behavior of one copper compound was investigated by dielectric relaxation spectroscopy in the frequency range from 10 Hz to 13 MHz. It exhibits the Goldstone mode, the soft mode, and a molecular mode.
