Dispersions of multi wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in liquid crystals (LCs)type 5CB have attracted attention due to their unique properties and possible applications in photonics and electronics. The results of the investigations of improved the electro-optical properties of liquid crystal optical switch are being presented here. The addition of MWCNT showed fast response time ,fast rise time,and lower threshold voltage.
