Abstract
We discuss principles of the formation of hybrid composite materials comprised of polymeric matrices and inorganic nanoparticles for photonics. The major focus of this review is on the applications of anisotropic matrices that can control the spatial arrangement of nanoparticles. The fundamental aspects related to hybrid organic-inorganic composites with photonic properties provided by LC polymers are of great importance. Several approaches are considered as efficient tools for tuning the photoluminescence by means of chemical coupling (covalent or non-covalent) of polymers with nanoparticles as well as mesophase structure type and morphology of nanoparticles.

Keywords: nanocomposite, liquid crystal polymer, nanoparticles, photoluminescence
