Paper Abstract

Polymer dispersed liquid crystals are composite materials where nuclear magnetic relaxation is strongly affected by specific liquid crystal ordering and high surface to volume ratio. Frequency and temperature dependences of proton rotating frame relaxation and temperature dependences of deuteron spin-lattice relaxation are discussed. It is demonstrated how relaxation studies provide us with information on droplet ordering and details about molecular anchoring on the polymer surface.
