Abstract
Liquid crystals are important materials because of their applications in display technology and many other scientific applications. Different mixtures of liquid crystals and their doped samples have gained interest because a single liquid crystal compound cannot fulfill all the required parameters for the display application. The doping can be accomplished with dyes, polymers, or composite nanoparticles among other substance. The addition of nanoparticles can modify the physical properties of the host liquid crystal and enhances the performance of electro-optical devices. The present study is focused on investigations of possible changes in dielectric and electro optical properties of liquid crystals caused by doping with ceramic nanoparticles. Including smaller nanoparticles were found to be better candidates for use in suppressing the unwanted ion effects in liquid crystal displays.
