Paper Abstract

The spectral properties of some fluorescence dichroic dyes in isotropic solvents and nematic liquid crystals have been studied. The order parameter of the dyes in the anisotropic matrices has been determined by means of the polarized absorption and fluorescence measurements. The influence of the dye addition on the clearing temperature of the nematic host has been investigated. The main purpose of the investigation was to get some information on the dyes in order to use them in colored liquid crystal displays.
