Paper Abstract

In this work we present experimental results of the influence of hydrostatic pressure on polarization and propagation properties of the photonic crystal fibers infiltrated with liquid crystals. Two ranges of Photonic Band Gaps (PBGs) were observed and hydrostatic pressure was found to narrow the PBGs and also to introduce changes in the state of polarization The results obtained suggest great potential of the LC-infiltrated photonic crystal fibers for prospective constructions of fiber optics pressure sensors.
