Paper Abstract

Guiding properties of liquid crystal (LC) filled photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) can be easily tuned by using an external electric field. In this paper we discuss electric field distribution within the LC filled PCFs for three different electrodes configurations: two flat parallel electrodes, four electrodes arranged in the V-groove assembly, and finally two short parallel electrodes together with two conductive rods placed on both sides of the fiber. The last two configurations enable four different directions of the electric field depending on the applied voltage
