The temperature dependence of the tilt angle theta is studied in the smectic C* phase near the smectic A-smectic C* tricritical point for a mixture of 70PD0B in the ferroelectric liquid crystal C7 (X = 16.92). The mean-field models with the biquadratic P-2 theta(2) (P is the spontaneous polarization) and P-2 theta(2) + P theta (bilinear) coupling terms in the free energy expansion are used to analyze the experimental data for the tilt angle in this binary mixture. From our analysis, the coefficients given in the free energy expansion of the mean-field models are determined. Our results show that the mean-field theory explains adequately the observed behaviour of the C7-70PD0B mixture near the AC* tricritical point.

Temperature dependence of the polarization and tilt angle under an electric field close to the smectic AC* phase transition in a ferroelectric liquid crystal
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The temperature dependence of the polarization P and the tilt angle theta is calculated here in the presence of a constant electric field near the smectic AC* phase transition of a ferroelectric liquid crystal using a mean field model. We demonstrate here the temperature dependence of P and theta under some fixed electric fields for the ferroelectric liquid crystal of 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'-heptyloxybiphenyl. Our predicted values of P and theta at various temperatures under fixed electric field...
Temperature dependence of the order parameters (spontaneous polarisation and the tilt angle) at various concentrations for a mixture of SCE9+SCE10
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2012-01-01)
The smectic A- smectic C* (AC*) transition in a binary mixture of SCE9+SCE10 is studied at various concentrations of SCE9 near (x(c) = 0.12) and above xc (tricritical concentration). The temperature dependences of the spontaneous polarisation and the tilt angle (order parameters) are calculated using our mean field model with the bilinear and biquadratic couplings between these two order parameters. The expressions derived from the mean field model are fitted to the experimental data from the literature and...
Temperature dependence of the Raman frequency of an internal mode for SiO2-moganite close to the α-β Transition
Lider, Mustafa Cem; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2012-12-01)
The temperature dependence of the 501 cm frequency of the vibrational mode is analyzed for SiO moganite. The experimental data for the heating and cooling cycles of moganite from the literature is used for our analysis. The coexistence of moganite is obtained over a finite temperature interval, and the moganite transition at around 570 K is studied, as observed experimentally.
Temperature dependence of the piezoelectric resonance frequency in relation to the anomalous strain near the incommensurate phase of quartz
Ates, S.; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2021-01-01)
The temperature dependence of the piezoelectric resonance frequency is analyzed by the power-law formula in the vicinity of the critical temperature of the incommensurate (INC) phase in quartz using the experimental data from the literature. By considering the piezoelectric resonance frequency as an order parameter of the INC phase, correlation between the piezoelectric resonance frequency and the strain is constructed, which both decrease linearly with increasing temperature toward T-c in quartz. Our resul...
Temperature effects on the structural and optical properties of the TlInSe2xS2(1-x) mixed crystals (x=0.3)
Omar, A.; Qasrawi, A. F.; Hasanlı, Nızamı (2017-11-15)
In this work, we have studied the temperature effects on the recrystallization process and on the energy band gap of the TlInSe(2)xS(2(1 - x)) mixed crystals at the critical composition (x = 0.3) where structural phase transition from tetragonal to monoclinic takes place. Remarkable effect which included permanent recrystallization process, enlargements in the monoclinic crystallite size, decreases in the compressing strain and in the dislocation density as well as in the stacking faults and in the energy b...
