The electrooptical characteristics of carbon nanotube-doped liquid crystal (LC) devices were investigated. Two complementary operation modes of the liquid crystal cells were fabricated. The measured results reveal that anisotropic carbon nanosolids modify the dielectric anisotropy and the viscosity of the liquid crystal carbon nanotube mixture, hence significantly modifying the threshold voltage and the switching behavior of a liquid crystal device. Doping a small amount of carbon nanotubes into the liquid crystal mixture is effective in improving the electrooptical characteristics of an LC device when the employed LC mixture is viscous.
