Paper Abstract

Fullerene-doped dispersed nematic liquid crystal structures have been considered as new nanostructured materials with a high speed. The switch-on time of 50-100 μs has been obtained. The results are discussed from the viewpoint of an additional polarizability of the fullerene-doped systems and the possible quasi-transition from the nematic phase to the smectic one, which are caused by a complex formation between an organic molecule donor and a fullerene as electron acceptor. Self-organization in liquid crystal mesophase based on the new charge-transfer complexes has been revealed.
