Tunable properties of liquid crystal filled photonic crystal fibers

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • The electronic tunability of ferroelectric liquid crystal filled photonic crystal fibers is experimentally demonstrated in the wavelength range of 1500 nm - 1600 nm. The tunability is achieved by applying electric field onto the ferroelectric liquid crystal infiltrated photonic crystal fiber. Tuning of the fiber propagation properties is achieved due to reorientation of ferroelectric liquid crystal molecules on the application of the applied electric field. Such fibers could find applications in the fabrication of fast, low loss, cost effective and highly efficient in-fiber tunable devices to be used in the telecom wavelength range. © 2009 SPIE.
