Conductivity Mechanism of Smectic A Liquid Crystal 4-((S)-3,7-Dimethyloctyloxy)-2-[[[4-(S)-2-methylbutoxyphenyl]imino]methyl]Phenol in Different Temperatures
Determination of liquid crystals' conductivity mechanisms depending on different temperatures becomes important because of the technological device applications. In this study, ac conductivity mechanisms of the 4-((S)-3,7-Dimethyloctyloxy)-2-[[[4-(S)-2-methylbutoxyphenyl]imino]methyl]phenol (DMIP) have been analyzed by means of impedance spectroscopy measurements. The mesophase behaviour has been studied by differential scanning calorimetry and polarizing microscopy. It has been found that this liquid crystal (LC) exhibits enantiotropic Smectic A (SmA) mesophase at very low temperatures. The real and imaginary parts of dielectric constant have been calculated by capacitance method. It has been determined that the conductivity mechanism of the LC alters with the temperature interval 25–52 °C. The frequency dependence of ac conductivity (σ ac) of the LC has been analyzed by means of frequency exponent parameter, s.
