Abstract
The dielectric constants ε′ and ε″ of a series of "liquid crystal (LC) - polymer" composites in the frequency region 10-3-105 Hz are measured. The composites are prepared by a photo-separation method with the variation of polymer content from 0 to 50 weight %. For all samples, a relaxation effect with a low relaxation frequency (10-1-20 Hz) is observed. This effect is assigned to dielectric relaxation in the near-electrode layers. The experimentally observed increase of the relaxation frequency and the electric conductivity with polymer concentration is explained by incomplete phase separation occurred in "liquid crystal - pre-polymer" mixture under irradiation.
