Abstract

Liquid crystals are self-organizing anisotropic fluids. In this work the transfer of order from liquid crystals to single-wall carbon nanotubes embedded in them is exploited within the geometry of standard cells used for large-scale alignment of liquid crystals. Using Polarized Raman Spectroscopy the alignment of the SWCNTs along the common liquid crystal direction is unambiguously demonstrated through the analysis of the variation of the peak intensity of the nanotube Raman modes with respect to the polarization direction of the light. © 2005 American Institute of Physics.
