Paper Abstract

In great majority of the previous works devoted to photonic liquid crystal fibers (PLCFs) a photonic band-gap propagation was investigated, since silica glass fibers' refractive index is lower than refractive indices of the most of liquid crystals. In this work we focus on the electrical tuning of the index-guiding PLCFs based on host-fibers made from multi-component glasses with enhanced value of refractive index. Impact of the electric field on the light propagation in index-guiding PLCFs has been carefully studied and effective tuning of the phase birefringence, attenuation and polarization dependent losses has been observed experimentally.
