(Color online) Schematic illustration of fabrication process to infiltrate naphthalene polymer into carbon nanotube cavities (a) and the corresponding HRTEM image of the liquid crystal director field (b).

FIG. 2.

(Color online) (a) Possible homeotropic (face-on) anchoring configurations of discotic liquid crystals inside cylindrical channels. Under very small nanoscale size, discotics show the planar-polar configuration in the weak anchoring regime; (b) visualization of LC order within a MWNT cavity under HRTEM.

FIG. 3.

(Color online) (a) Theoretically predicted planar-polar configurations as a function of anchoring strength ; (b) the locally averaged spatial order parameters of LC carbons confined within a MWNT cavity. The fitting curve gives a correlation length , using the determined surface order parameter .
