Retardation effects breaking long-range orientational ordering in dipolar fluids.

Abstract

A strongly coupled dipolar fluid confined in a sphere has been examined by Monte Carlo simulations using a modified distance-dependent pair interaction to emulate retardation effects. The effective dipole-dipole interaction and a property closely related to Kirkwood's g-factor have been analyzed for potentials with different distances at which the retardation effects became effective. The retardation effects were found to break the otherwise long-range structural ordering occurring in strongly coupled dipolar fluids.
