Paper Abstract

Photonic liquid crystal fibers allow for dynamic modification of their guiding and polarization properties. In particular it is possible to dynamically tune phase delay between two orthogonal polarization of the guided mode. In this work an index-guiding photonic liquid crystal fiber with highly tunable retardation, reaching value of 15λ (or 30π in terms of phase difference) is presented. Electric tuning with two sets of electrodes is also discussed and demonstrated proving that photonic liquid crystal fibers can be utilized as a all-in-fiber polarization controllers.
