SAW Investigation of Structural Changes in Liquid Crystals Doped with Magnetic Particles
The surface acoustic waves (SAW) were used to study the effect of magnetic particles on liquid crystals (6CHBT) structural changes in electric and weak magnetic fields using measurements of the attenuation of SAW propagating along ferronematic liquid crystals. The magnetic nanoparticles in low volume concentration ( = 1 · 10–4, 1 · 10–5, 5 · 10–5) were added to the liquid crystal during its isotropic phase. In contrast to undoped 6CHTB the distinctive SAW attenuation responses induced by both electric and weak magnetic fields in studied ferronematic liquid crystals have been observed suggesting both structural changes and the orientational coupling between both electric and magnetic moments of magnetic particles and the director of the liquid crystal.
