Paper Abstract

We report on theoretical and experimental studies of all-optical polarization conversion of cw 1.55 μm lasers using nematic liquid crystal in their ordered and isotropic phases. Almost complete conversion of the linearly polarized laser is achieved in a 400 μm thick film at mW power.
