Abstract: In the present study, effect of CNT on optical and thermal properties of mixed thermotropic liquid crystal mixture was studied by various techniques to understand their physical behavior. Some new mesophases have investigated by optical methods viz. Polarizing Optical Microscopy (POM) and Fabry–Perot Scattering Studies (FPSS). It has been observed that these new phase transition occur along with the known phase transition temperatures. These new phase transitions corresponding to new mesophases were also confirmed by thermal study using Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA). The CNT doped thermotropic liquid mixtures can be used in various display application such as LCD monitor with color variation to enhance performance. Copyright © 2018 VBRI Press.
