Dielectric anizotropy and relaxation properties of 2,3-dicyano-1,4-di[3,4,5-tri(dodecyloxy)phenylcarbonyloxy] benzene (DCDPB)-doped E7 and E7 liquid crystal have been investigated by the dielectric spectroscopy method. Dielectric anisotropy property of the LCs changes from the positive type to negative type. Dielectric relaxation properties suggest that LCs exhibit a monodispersive dielectric property. The relaxation frequency of E7 and E7/DCDPB liquid crystals was calculated by means of Cole-Cole plots. Consequently, DCDPB dopant changes the dielectric anizotropy and relaxation parameters of E7 LC. (C) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
