 Title    Molecular Orientation in Uniaxial Liquid Crystal Phases as Studied by Electron Paramagnetic Resonance  
 Abstract    The electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of 3/3-doxyl-5a:-cholestane dissolved in five liquid crystals have been recorded as a function of temperature in the isotropic and mesogenic phases. From these spectra the order parameter (P2) has been determined. The results have been com-pared with the data obtained from the optical birefringence measurements and from the polarized absorption spectra of the dichroic dye dissolved in liquid crystal host.

 Title    High Pressure Dielectric Studies of 8CB in the Isotropic, Nematic, and Smectic A Phases  
 Abstract    The static and complex permittivity of 4-n-octyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl (8CB) has been measured for the isotropic, nematic and smectic A phases as functions of temperature and pressure. The ranges of 297 -361 K, 0.1 -220 MPa, and 0.1 -13 MHz, were covered. Only the parallel component of the complex permittivity, £*(/) = e'(f) — ie"(f), was measured. The relaxation times T||(p, T) as well as ris(p, T) were analysed at constant temperature, pressure and volumes yielding the activation volume, A ¥ V(T), activation enthalpy A^H(p), and activation energy lyU(V), respectively. All activation parameters calculated for the smectic A phase of 8CB are smaller than those obtained for the nematic phase. The activation energy constitutes approximately half of the activation enthalpy value in all three phases studied. The pressure study allowed to calculate the pressure dependence of the retardation factor g\\(p, T), from which the nematic potential q(p,T) can be derived. Using the relationships between g\\ and q/RT proposed by Kalmykov and Coffey, the order parameter (Piip, T)) was calculated as a function of pressure.

 Title    Dielectric Studies of 4-w-Hexyloxy-4'-Cyanobiphenyl (60CB) at Elevated Pressure  
 Abstract    The principal dielectric permittivity components in the nematic phase of 4-rc-hexyloxy-4'-cyanobiph-enyl (60CB) were measured as functions of temperature at ambient pressure and as functions of pres-sure up to 100 MPa at several constant temperatures. The dielectric anisotropy is analized in the frame of the Maier-Meier equations. The pressure dependence of the order parameter is deduced. Preliminary results for the activation volume and activation enthalpy from the pressure and temperature dependenc-es of the longitudinal relaxation times are obtained.
