A sputtering deposition method was investigated for fabrication and dispersion of titanium (Ti) nanoparticles (NPs) into nematic liquid crystals (NLCs) and the properties of NLC devices doped with Ti NPs were examined. Statistical analysis revealed that the size of Ti NPs generated was not a function of doping duration. It was found by transmission electron microscopy that unique crystalloid Ti formed. When the weight of the Ti NPs was greater than the buoyancy force of the LC, the crystalloid Ti sank into the LC and NPs were thereby fabricated. Stronger van der Waals dispersion interactions allow rapid.
