Abstract

Experimental results of temperature-, electric field-, and hydrostatic-pressure-induced effects in solid-core highly birefringent photonic liquid crystal fibers are presented. Selective infiltration of the photonic crystal fibers with liquid crystals was found to induce birefringence axes switching resulting in a variety of tunable photonic liquid crystal fibers-based devices.
