Paper Abstract

We present theoretical analysis of tunable bandgap guidance in virtue of bandgap theory. By means of plane-wave method a novel tunable photonic bandgap microstructure fiber (MF) was investigated by tuning the refractive index of nematic liquid crystal crystal (NLC) filled in the holes of MFs. Moreover, by using a full-vector finite-element method (FEM) with anisotropic perfectly matched layers (PMLs), the dispersion curves of NLC filled MFs have been computed with different value of the refractive index of NLC. Moreover, the leakage loss of the fundamental modes of the NLC filled MFs has been analyzed.
