NPs at the edge: Functionalized nanoparticles can have a great impact on the electro-optic response of a nematic host, both when dispersed in the bulk and when residing at the LC/substrate interface. Dispersions featuring a combination of both possible effects are studied and a method for distinguishing bulk and surface effects is presented. Experimental data is confirmed by numerical simulations.
