We report measurements of the temperature variations of physical parameters in ambient-temperature nematic liquid crystal mixtures of bent-core (BC) and rodlike molecules (5CB): birefringence n; static dielectric constants || and ⊥ ; splay K 11 and bend K 33 elastic constants; rotational viscosity γ 1 ; and diffusion coefficients D || and D ⊥ of a microsphere. Both n and || decreases rapidly with increasing BC concentration, whereas ⊥ remains almost constant. At a shifted temperature (e.g., T −doi:10.1103/physreve.85.011702 pmid:22400578 fatcat:6w2lsnxzsjhmjcwqfe5ewiovvu
