 Title    Dielectric Studies on Liquid Crystals under High Pressure: VI. Low Frequency Relaxation Process in the Nematic and Smectic A Phase of 4-n-Octyl-4'-Cyanobiphenyl (8 CB)  
 Abstract    Dielectric relaxation studies of 4-n-octyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl (8 CB) were performed in the pressure range 0 .1 -1 2 0 M Pa, the frequency range 1 k H z -1 3 M Hz and the temperature range 2 9 5-331 K. The dielectric behaviour of 8C B in the nematic phase is similar to that of 5CB, 6C B and 7CB. In particular, the activation enthalpy decreases with increasing pressure and the activation volume decreases with increasing temperature in the nematic phase. In the smectic A phase of 8CB both these parameters are markedly lower and show opposite pressure and temperature dependencies. We tentatively interpret these effects as a result of breaking of the dipole-dipole correlations which manifests itself differently in these liquid crystalline phases.
