Abstract

The ionic properties of liquid crystals doped with one-dimensional carbon nanotubes, two-dimensional montmorillonite, and a mixture of both are investigated. The results indicate that the relaxation times of electrode polarization and ionic conductivity are time-dependent after the cell fabrication regardless of doping. While all of the dopants are effective in capturing impurity ions, the cells containing the hybrid dopant exhibit the feeblest ionic effect at room temperature.
