News Article


Currently, the composites of liquid crystals with nanoparticles are the front runners in the field of soft matter studies. The intriguing interest in this field arises from the fact that a drastic change in the behavior/properties of liquid crystals is realized upon their interaction with nanoparticles. The ability to reorient the nematic liquid crystal director with a small threshold voltage, changes in the elastic co-efficient, rotational viscosities, enhancement in the dielectric anisotropy, optical properties and electrical conductivities. Altogether, a realization of organic conductors is achievable through these nanocomposites.
