Magnetic-Field Induced Isotropic to Nematic Phase Transition in Ferronematics

Abstract

In this work the thermotropic liquid crystal 4-(trans-4'-n-hexylcyclohexyl)-isothiocyanato-benzene (6CHBT) was doped with differently shaped magnetic nanoparticles with the aim to increase the sensitivity of the liquid crystal on the external magnetic field. The volume concentration of the magnetic particles was 2×10-4. The phase transition temperature from… (More)
