Abstract
The properties of liquid crystal (LCs) can be altered by incorporating guest materials. The physical properties of carbon nano tubes doped liquid crystal (CNTs/LC) and pristine LC have been investigated. The rotational viscosity of CNTs/LC was lower whereas dielectric anisotropy was almost the same as compared to pristine LC. Also the twisted nematic LC cell driven by vertical field and homogeneously aligned nematic LC cells doped with carbon nanotubes (CNTs) driven by an in-plane field were fabricated and their electro-optic characteristics were investigated. The response time of CNTs doped LC was found to be improved due to the decrease in rotational viscosity.
