Slow secondary relaxation process in supercooled liquids

We report on dielectric susceptibility measurements for the glass-forming systems toluene and 1-propanol, both of which exhibit slow secondary relaxation (Johari β-process). We present a complete lineshape analysis for both α- and β-process covering the real and imaginary parts. The observation of secondary relaxation in the rigid molecule toluene shows that this process is not of intramolecular origin. The β-process is well resolved in the supercooled liquid and in the glass. Above Tg a strong temperature dependence of the relaxation strength is observed. For the activation energy of many glass-forming systems we find the relation .
