The static dielectric constant is calculated as a function of temperature using a mean field model close to the smectic A-smectic C* transition for the ferroelectric liquid crystal 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'-heptyloxybiphenyl (A7). This calculation of the dielectric constant is performed for the pure optically active compound (T-c = 73.4 degrees C) and the temperature range is determined for a first-order smectic A-smectic C* transition from the mean field model. Our predicted values describe adequately the observed behaviour of the dielectric constant close to the smectic A-smectic C* transition and also the temperature range in the smectic A phase of A7.

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...
Critical behaviour of the dielectric constant for the smectic AC* transition under the electric field in ferroelectric liquid crystals
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2012-01-01)
The temperature dependencies of the dielectric constant and the tilt angle (order parameter) are calculated under the electric field for the smectic A-smectic C* (AC*) transition in 4-(3-methyl-2-chlorobutanoyloxy)-4'-heptyloxybiphenyl (A7). The dielectric constant is fitted to the experimental data by using our mean field model with the biquadratic coupling between the spontaneous polarisation P and the tilt angle theta. Our results show that the mean field model with the P-2 theta(2) coupling describes sa...
Analysis of the Critical Magnetic Field and the Dielectric Susceptibility for the Smectic A-Smectic C* Transition in DOBAMBC
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2015-01-01)
The temperature dependences of the critical magnetic field H-c and the dielectric susceptibility x(at constant magnetic fields) are analyzed close to the smectic Asmectic C* transition in DOBAMBC using the experimental data according to a power-law formula. These analyses are performed below T-c in the smectic C* phase. Values of the critical exponent delta for the critical magnetic field are determined in a given temperature interval (Tc-T) with increasing and decreasing H-c. Also, values of the critical e...
Critical behaviour of ammonia near the melting point
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (2002-08-01)
This study gives our calculations for thermodynamic quantities, such as the isothermal cornpressibility k(T), thermal expansivity alphap and the specific heat C-P, as a function of temperature for solid ammonia near the melting point. Our calculations, which have been performed on the basis of an experimental study given in the literature, show that those thermodynamic quantities diver e near the melting point in ammonia. This is an indication that ammonia exhibits a critical transition as one approaches th...
Spontaneous polarization close to phase transitions in NaNO2
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Tari, O (2001-08-01)
We give here the calculation of the order parameter and the spontaneous polarization as functions of temperature using the mean field model close to the phase transitions in NaNO2. We have fitted our calculated order parameter to the observed one from the literature. From this fitting, we have then calculated the spontaneous polarization as a function of temperature close to the phase transitions in NaNO2. Our calculated spontaneous polarization is in good agreement with the observed spontaneous polarizatio...
