Abstract

Phase transitions of the nematic liquid crystal p-methoxy-benzylidine, p−n butyl-aniline were studied by recording the low-frequency Raman spectrum. The intensity of the lattice Raman bands undergoes abrupt change at the crystalline-to-nematic phase transition temperature, with an indication of a hysteresis. The band totally disappears at the isotropic (liquid) phase.
