FT-IR time-resolved spectroscopy (FT-IR TRS) with simultaneous temporal and spectral resolution can provide detailed information concerning both structural and orientational changes of molecules in transient systems. This paper reports the application of 1D and 2D FT-IR TRS to the study of electric field-induced reorientaion dynamics of liquid crystals.
