Paper Abstract

An electrically controllable fiber Bragg grating (FBG) for working in the communication band is demonstrated by utilizing holographic polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (HPDLCs). PDLC is infiltrated in hollow-core fibers which are about 2μm and 5μm by means of capillarity. For the purpose of periodically separating polymer and liquid crystal to form an FBG, a two-beam interference system based on an argon laser (wavelength: 364nm) is used. To reduce coupling loss, we directly connect single-mode fibers (SMFs) to input and output ports. A maximum transmission loss dip of approximately 5-dB band rejection is obtained. After the cladding diameter is etched by buffered oxide etchant (BOE) solution to 12μm and a 150V external voltage is applied, a dip shift by ~ 15nm is measured
