It has been shown experimentally that the ferroelectric nano-particles, in common with other molecular additives, shift the clearing temperature, T-c, extending or reducing the two-phase coexistent region and changing the average order parameter of the single-component nematics. An increase of up to 11 degrees C or a smaller decrease of as much as 3 degrees C of T-c, and corresponding changes of the order parameter were observed In all cases the order parameter of the colloid followed the universal temperature behaviour, which is a characteristic of LCs with molecular additives
