Abstract
We have made 12 preparations of different optical fibers with circular (diameter 5 micrometer) and elliptical (4 X 18 micrometer) cores made of liquid crystals. We have elaborated drawing of capillaries of suitable dimensions from quartz glass and we have constructed a few stations for successive stages of preparation and measurement of these fibers. We have examined influence of hydroxylation of capillary's inner surface and coating it by polyimide or polyvinyl alcohol on quality of prepared liquid crystal fibers. Acquired relationships for one kind of liquid crystal allowed creation of general rules of preparation of liquid crystals optical fibers. These general rules will surely fit other kinds of liquid crystals.
