Dynamics in supercooled liquids and in the isotropic phase of liquid crystals: A comparison


A comparison is made of the dynamics observed over wide ranges of time and temperature between five supercooled liquids and four isotropic phase liquid crystals that have been previously studied separately. Optical-heterodyne-detected optical Kerr effect ~OHD–OKE! measurements were employed to obtain the orientational relaxation dynamics over time scales… (More)
