Stimulus responsive liquid crystal nanorods, 60 μm in length and 200 nm in diameter, were fabricated by a template synthesis technique. The liquid crystal, RM 257, is a reactive monomer which polymerizes with the application of UV light. After polymerization the liquid crystal's orientational order is permanently “frozen”. Therefore, the subsequent structures are temperature independent after curing. In this study the liquid crystal was confined in the pores of Anopore membranes before curing, which results in rod structures after photo-polymerization. After fabrication, the rods were observed under the application of both AC and DC electric fields. DC fields were noted by either up and down or translational movement of the rods. Application of AC fields resulted in random movement of the rods.
