Abstract: Let $ F'/F$ be a finite normal extension of number fields with Galois group $ Gal(F'/F)$. Let $ \chi$ be an irreducible character of $ Gal(F'/F)$ of degree greater than one and $ L(s,\chi)$ the associated Artin $ L$-function. Assuming the truth of Artin's conjecture, we have explicitly determined a zero-free region about $ 1$ for $ L(s,\chi)$. As an application we show that, for a CM-field $ K$ of degree $ 2n$ with solvable normal closure over $ \mathbb{Q}$, if $ n \geq 370$ as well as $ n \notin \{ 384, 400, 416, 448, 512 \}$, then the relative class number of $ K$ is greater than one.
