Dielectric Spectroscopy Below the Glass Temperature — •Korbinian Geirhos, Peter Lunkenheimer, and Alois Loidl — Experimental Physics V, University of Augsburg, Germany
The dynamics of glassy matter above the glass temperature (Tg) is already extensively studied by dielectric spectroscopy in a broad frequency and temperature range. Dielectric data of glasses below Tg, however, are rather scarce. The dielectric spectra of glass formers above Tg are dominated by relaxation processes. These contributions may hide additional processes, which are proposed by different models, like the "Nearly Constant Loss" of the Coupling Model  or the fast β-Process of the Extended Mode Coupling Theory . Below Tg, however, the main relaxation features are shifted out of the experimental frequency window. As a consequence, possible additional processes can be observed and studied. For this purpose, we provide temperature- and frequency-dependent dielectric data of different glass formers down to temperatures of 4 K.
