We present faster display devices based on copper oxide decorated multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) doped ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) material. The fastening of the response has been attributed to decrease in rotational viscosity of the FLC material. The ionic impurities were also reduced by doping copper oxide decorated MWCNTs into the FLC material, and the reduction has been attributed to trapping of ions by the guest copper oxide decorated MWCNTs. The observations of fastening the response and reduction of ionic impurities have been verified by experimental data using dielectric and electro-optical studies. The underlying mechanism would certainly help to understand the basic mechanism of interaction of CNTs with FLC molecules and could be applied to fabricate ionic defects free faster display devices.
