Abstract

Functional materials based on ferroelectric, inorganic nanoparticles, and low refractive index nematic liquid crystals show strong induced birefringence and dielectric anisotropy. Birefringence can increase by a factor of 2 and dielectric anisotropy by a factor of 3 as compared with nominally pure liquid crystals. The enhancement of the electro-optic performance is higher in liquid crystals with (SPS) nanoparticles than with nanoparticles. The shape and size distribution of both types of ferroelectric particles were characterized using atomic force microscopy. The average size of SPS nanoparticles was and of nanoparticles was .
