We show experimentally and theoretically that ferroelectric nanoparticles could produce enhanced changes in the physical properties of a liquid crystal (LC) host. It is introduced how to use the ferroelectric nanoparticles for the preparation of various LC-ferroelectric nanoparticle composites. In the process we also present how to prepare these composites using other ferroelectric nanoparticles as well as to improve the physical properties of the host LC. Following the preparation of LC-particle composites, we present experimental data obtained that compares differences between nanoparticle (ferroelectric) doped LC host and unmodified LC. We review a few key points related to how we selected a single component LC to provide various methods of enhancing the physical properties of host LC and the mixed results we obtained when we worked with commercial LC mixtures.
