Noble Orientation Change with Temperature in Nematic Liquid Crystalline Mixtures
Unusual alignment phenomena were observed for nematic liquid crystalline mixtures with a dopant having a cyclohexane asymmetric frame. The liquid crystalline molecules changed from being homeogeneously aligned with the glass plates to being homeotropically aligned perpendicular to the glass plates. We report the conditions for the phenomena and discuss the results.
