Abstract

We demonstrate an effective method of reducing ion density in the silica nanoparticle (SN)-doped LC cell by AC high-voltage-pulse excitation. The director distortion in LCs near the substrate creates a lifting force that traps the SNs and ions onto the substrates, markedly decreases ion density of the cell.
