Paper Abstract

Nanocomposites composed of a self prepared Ferroelectric Liquid Crystalline (FLC) matrix and different nanomaterials show pronounced reduction of important parameters like spontaneous polarization, switching time but no change of the tilt angle. As a typical subject silver nanoparticles where characterized. A pronounced increase of resistivity where described by comparing the pure FLC mixture with properties of FLC nanocomposites. Ion capturing due to silver particles has been discussed. Photoluminescence originated by the terphenyl compound and enhanced due to the Silver Surface Plasmon Resonance has been described.
