Paranematic interaction between nanoparticles of ordinary shape

Journal Phys Rev E, 71 (6 Pt 1), 062701
AbstractWe propose a general approach to the description of the long-ranged interaction between nanoparticles (1-10 nm) of ordinary shape in the paranematic phase, i.e., nematic liquid crystal in the isotropic phase. In general case interaction potential is attractive of Yukawa form with derivatives. But it can be anisotropic despite the isotropy of the paranematic phase. The origin of such anisotropy is the shape of nanoparticles. Particular potentials for spherical and cylindrical particles are considered. For the case of nanocylinders anisotropic part of the interaction potential can lead to the orientational ordering of them in the isotropic phase of nematic liquid crystals.
