We demonstrate an increase in the interparticle distance of a colloidal dipolar chain in a nematic liquid crystal(NLC). Applying an in-plane electric field perpendicular to the rubbing direction induces a splay-bend wall defect in the middle of the electrode gap, which traps a dipolar chain. Above the Freedericksz threshold electric field, the interparticle distance increases with increasing applied electric field, owing to the reorientation of the NLC molecules. The maximum increase is 32% of the particle diameter.
