Abstract

We measured the optical properties of a new inorganic liquid crystal material. By changing the synthesization process AlFe colloidal rods approximately 200-400 nm in length and ellipsoidal platelets 2000-5000 nm in diameter can be created. In this paper we show that the optical properties of this new material change with its exposure to an external magnetic field making it particularly suitable for medical diagnostic applications.
