New FRS studies were carried out using the complementary grating model. Data obtained at higher sensitivity confirm the non-Arrhenius behavior reported previously for MR in nematic 5CB. The results highlight the importance of accounting for complementary gratings effects for accurate FRS measurements in liquid-crystal systems.
