This work reviews the recent progress made in last decade in understanding the role of dispersion of
nanoparticles and quantum dots into host nematic liquid crystals. There are two important ingredients of this work: Even a minute concentration of these non-mesogenic materials in host matrix can have reflective impact on the dielectric, electro-optical, and spectroscopic properties of host nematics and the nematic-nanoparticles composite systems become suitable for the use in nematic based display and other devices.
Keywords: nematic liquid crystals; nanoparticles dispersion; quantum dots dispersion; dielectric permittivity; response time; threshold voltage nematic liquid crystals; nanoparticles dispersion; quantum dots dispersion; dielectric permittivity; response time; threshold voltage
