Quasielastic neutron scattering and microscopic dynamics of liquid ethylene glycol

Abstract : Quasielastic neutron scattering (QENS) by liquid ethylene glycol was analyzed using different model approaches. It was found that approximation of the QENS spectra by a set of Lorentzian functions corresponding to the translational and rotational motions produce physically unrealistic results. At the same time, the Fourier transform of the stretched-exponential function exp(−(t/τ)β) fits the experimental data well, and results of the fit are in good agreement with those obtained earlier for other systems. The stretching parameter β was found Q independent and shows weak temperature dependence. The mean relaxation time as a function of Q departs strongly from the simple diffusion low and can be approximated by a power law left angle bracketτwright-pointing angle bracket = τ0Q−γ with the exponent parameter γ = 2.4.
