Paper Abstract

The paper discusses polarization phenomena occurring in highly birefringent (HB) photonic liquid crystal fibers based on the Blazephotonics HB photonic crystal fiber infiltrated with a liquid crystal. We report on the latest experimental polarization characteristics of microstructured photonic crystal fibers filled with two types of nematic liquid crystals: with low (of the order ~ 0.05) or medium (of the order ~ 0.2) material birefringence. Electrically and temperature-induced tuning of polarization properties have been demonstrated.
