New Physics Research Data Have Been Reported by Researchers at Institute of Molecular Physics (Sensitivity of 6CHBT Liquid Crystal Doped with Ferroelectric or Magnetic Particles to Electric and Magnetic Fields)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Current study results on Physics Research have been published. According to news reporting originating in Poznan, Poland, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Introduction of ferroelectric or magnetic nanoparticles into nematic liquid crystal is a promising method for the improvement of the electro-optic or magneto-optic properties of different nematic liquid crystals by non-chemical way. This work is devoted to the study of composite systems of liquid crystal with spherical ferroelectric or magnetic particles with the aim to study their sensitivity to electric and magnetic fields."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the Institute of Molecular Physics, "The nematic 4-(trans-4'-n-hexylcyclohexyl)-isothiocyanatobenzene (6CHBT) liquid crystal was doped with SbSI ferroelectric particles or with Fe3O4 magnetic particles. The structural transitions in ferronematic samples were indicated by capacitance measurements in a capacitor made of ITO-coated glass electrodes in combined electric and magnetic fields."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The obtained results showed the increase of the shift in critical voltage with increasing magnetic field in both kinds of samples."
