Field of knowledge:Physical Sciences and Mathematics - Physics - Condensed Matter Physics
Principal Investigator:Daniel Reinaldo Cornejo
Grantee:Fabiana Rodrigues Arantes
Host Institution: Instituto de Física (IF). Universidade de São Paulo (USP). São Paulo , SP, Brazil
Associated scholarship(s):12/04949-2 - Study of magnetorhelogic properties of liquid crystals doped with magnetic particles, BE.EP.DR


In this work will be performed an exhaustive study of the behavior of magnetic nanoparticles diluted in matrices of different types of liquid crystals, especially lyotropic liquid crystals, and polymeric elastomers, as well as common liquids such as oil and water. The interest is to study and understand the influence of anisotropy of liquid crystals chemically different (and with different phases) on the surface of the nanoparticles of magnetic materials such as magnetite. The methodology of work involves both experimental and theoretical aspects.
