dc.description.abstractAntiphase relaxation process of antiferroelectric phase is investigated in binary mixtures of antiferroelectric and ferroelectric liquid crystalline compounds. It is found that the frequency of the antiphase mode ranges from 2 to 4 MHz, being one of the fastest collective processes reported so far. This can be exploited in a photonic switch with a submicrosecond response time. However, the frequency of the antiphase mode decreases by the mixing ratio of the ferroelectric compound. The decrease in the frequency is shown to be due to a reduction in the elastic constant in between the adjacent layers.en
