Quasi-elastic light scattering of Carnauba wax in the liquid phase is done in a homodyne setup and is interpreted as due partially to polarized clusters. A dynamics model is proposed, and effective parameters are obtained in the 85–130°C temperature range. Some evidence exists that the local field seen by a polarized cluster is much higher than the applied static electric field.
