The results pertaining to faster electro-optic response time and improved photoluminescence (PL) of BaTiO3 nanoparticles (BT NPs) doped ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) are presented. The observed increase (∼2 fold) in PL intensity and simultaneous reduction of response time have been achieved for an optimal BT NPs doping of 0.2 wt. %. These are attributed to the large dipole moment of BT that couples effectively with that of FLC molecules. These studies would provide benchmark for realization of high luminescent FLC devices that are faster in response.
