A new electrical equivalent circuit (EEC) has been proposed to model antiferroelectric liquid crystal devices. This circuit includes a constant phase element to take into account the ferroelectric part of the dielectric response in these devices. Electrical characterization of samples has been carried out using a specific experimental protocol based on impedance spectroscopy. The parameters of waveforms used in impedance measurements have been optimized. The procedure to obtain the components of the EEC has also been explained. Finally, the EEC has been validated by comparing experimental and simulated impedance results. A reasonable agreement between both of them has been obtained in a wide frequency range for all selection voltages.
