© 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.The electrical and dielectric properties of the nematic liquid crystal (E63) and Nickel Phthalocyanine (NiPc) doped E63 composite have been investigated by dielectric spectroscopy under 0–0.4 T magnetic field. It has been observed that NiPc doping and external magnetic field, B decrease threshold voltage. Moreover, conductivity of the composite has an increasing tendency with magnetic field. Furthermore, a significant decrease in relaxation frequency with B has been interpreted as the simplification of molecular orientation. Hence, NiPc doping enhances the magnetic sensitivity of E63 and increases molecular orientation ability and conductivity.
