FIG. 1.

Schematic outline of the changes of the relaxation-time dispersion in terms of with temperature across the range from . This example displays a considerable narrowing of the distribution of relaxation times as the temperature is increased, unlike systems that follow time-temperature superposition.

FIG. 2.

Dielectric loss spectra of neat -terphenyl for different temperatures. In the order of low to high peak frequency, the temperature varies from in steps of . The relaxation strength is . Data taken from Ref. 23, where only a fraction of the measurements are shown.

FIG. 3.

Temperature dependence of the peak relaxation-time constant , obtained by analyzing the data of Fig. 2. The line represents according to the VFT law of Eq. (1) with , , and .

FIG. 4.

Master plot of the dielectric loss data of neat -terphenyl shown in Fig. 2. The abscissa is scaled using the peak frequency , the ordinate is scaled as . This graph demonstrates that time-temperature superposition is applicable across the present temperature range.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

Dielectric loss spectra of neat -terphenyl measured at two temperatures, 258 and , taken from Ref. 25. The lines are KWW fits with a common exponent of . The fits were performed by Leon and Ngai; see Ref. 26.
