On the features of cooperative mobility in the amorphous phase of ferroelectric polymers
- 19 Downloads
Ferroelectric poly(vinylidene fluoride–hexafluoropropylene) films were prepared by low-temperature crystallization from the acetone and ethyl acetate solutions. Crystalline modifications of the obtained films were different (mixture of β- and γ-phases in case of acetone and predominantly α-phase in case of ethyl acetate). The dielectric spectroscopy studies showed that the relaxation strength of the main relaxation above the glass transition temperature (associated with the cooperative mobility in the amorphous phase) unusually increases with increasing temperature. Thermodynamic relationships suggest that this effect may be explained by assuming that there is a certain long-range order in the amorphous phase. This order may be due to the presence of the local field near the polar planes of the crystals, which form ferroelectric domains.
