Abstract

We have investigated the influence of doping with spherical magnetic nanoparticles on the mixture of a bent-core and a calamitic liquid crystal. Results showed a reduction of the critical field of the magnetic Fréedericksz transition by more than a factor of two after the doping. Moreover, we give for the first time experimental evidence of the theoretically predicted magnetically induced negative shift of the isotropic to nematic phase transition temperature.
