Abstract
Optical properties of zinc oxide nanowire (NW) dilute suspensions in polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) were investigated. Optical transmittance was found to decrease at the transition from chaotically oriented state to electrophoretically ordered state with the alignment of the NW along the direction of incident light. Previously reported observations of the behavior of dispersions containing oblong particles indicate that the transition of the orientation of particles from chaotic to ordered state induces increase in transmittance that may be attributed to the decrease of absorption or scattering cross-section. The measurements carried out in this study on ZnO nanoro...
