The paper describes steady and dynamic rheological characterization of a system in which polyaniline (PAn) is dispersed in aqueous medium by the effect of a surfactant sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS). During polymerization of aniline in SDS medium, large and agglomerated micelle-polymer structures are formed (supported by TEM and DLS) resulting in high(More)
We present numerical results relative to a bistable optical device comprised of an asymmetric Fabry-Perot cavity embedding a nonlinear optical medium. Both the real and imaginary part of the third order nonlinear susceptibility are considered in our calculations. Optimized device operation, expressed in terms of the contrast ratio between the two stable(More)
A detailed comparative study of the dielectric and electro-optical properties of a ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) and FLC after having doped with conducting polymer Poly (3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) nanotubes is done. The electro-optic study reveals a lower electrical response time, rotational viscosity and spontaneous polarization in the(More)
