Electro-optical characteristics of carbon nanotube-doped liquid crystal devices were investigated. The measured results reveal that anisotropic carbon nano-solids 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 the liquid crystal device. Doping a small amount of carbon nanotubes into the liquid crystal mixture is effective in improving the electro-optical characteristics of a LC device when the employed LC mixture is viscous.
