The temperature dependence of the static dielectric constant (epsilon) is calculated close to the smectic A-smectic B (S-A-S-B) transition (T-c = 71.3 degrees C) for the liquid crystal compound B5. By expanding the free energy in terms of the order parameter in the mean field theory, the expression for the dielectric susceptibility (dielectric constant) is derived and is fitted to the experimental data for epsilon which was obtained at the field strengths of 0 and 67 kV/cm from literature. Coefficients in the free energy expansion are determined from our fit for the S-A-S-B transition of B5. Our results show that the observed behaviour of the dielectric constant epsilon close to the S-A-S-B transition in B5 can be described satisfactorily by our mean field model.

The temperature dependences of the spontaneous polarization and the dielectric constant (susceptibility) are calculated using themean fieldmodel for the ferroelectric N(CH3)(4)HSO4. Expressions derived from the mean fieldmodel for the spontaneous polarization and the inverse susceptibility are fitted to the experimental data from the literature.

Calculation of the Brillouin frequencies close to phase transitions in NaNO2
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2002-01-01)
We calculate here the Brillouin frequencies of the L-mode [010], [001] and [100] of NaNO2 for the phase transitions from the paraelectric phase to the sinusoidal anti-ferroelectric phase near the Neel temperature (T-N = 437.7 K) and to the ferroelectric phase near the critical temperature (T-c = 436.3 K) in this crystalline system. For calculating the frequencies, we use the thermal expansivity data for the phase regions considered, under the assumption that the mode Gruneisen parameter determined for each ...

Temperature dependences of the frequencies for the Raman modes of v (NH2), v(s) (CH3), v(1) (HCOO-), vs (CNN) and IR mode of rho (NH2) are calculated in particular, for MHyMn close to the phase transition temperature (T-C = 220 K) in the family of compounds CH3NH2NH2 M(HCOO)(3), MHyM with M = Mn, Mg, Fe and Zn. By assuming Raman and infrared frequency as an order parameter, this calculation is performed from the molecular field theory by using the experimental data from the literature.

Calculation of the Dielectric Constant of a Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal From a Mean Field Model
YURTSEVEN, HASAN HAMİT; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2011-01-01)
The static dielectric constant epsilon(perpendicular to) of the ferroelectric liquid crystal 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'--heptyloxybiphenyl (A7) with high spontaneous polarization is calculated as a function of temperature using a mean field model. This calculation is performed close to the smectic A-isotropic liquid (SmA-I) transition for pure optically active compound (T-c = 81.6 degrees C). For this calculation of epsilon(perpendicular to), the free energy of the SmA phase is expanded in terms of...
Calculation of the damping constant and the relaxation time of the LA mode in the incommensurate phase of quartz
Ates, S.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2021-04-01)
The damping constant (linewidth) of the LA mode is calculated as a function of temperature for the incommensurate (INC) phase of quartz by using the models of the pseudospin-phonon (PS) coupled and the energy fluctuation (EF). For this calculation, the observed linewidth (Gamma(LA)) data are used at P = 0 and 80.5MPa from the literature. Close to the incommensurate phase between the alpha and beta phases of quartz, the observed Gamma(LA) and the frequency shifts (Delta v(LA) ) are also analyzed by the power...
