Abstract
The paper discusses the influence of temperature and an external electric field on spectral properties of the microstructured optical fibers infiltrated with liquid crystals and also presents a multi-core microstructured liquid crystal fiber showing strong influence of fluctuations of the fiber's dimensions on selective propagation bands. Moreover, we also report the latest experimental results on highly birefringent (HB) photonic crystal fibers (PCF). By using the wavelength scanning method, we have estimated birefringence in an HB PCF without and with liquid crystal filling. Subsequently, the possibility of birefringence tuning in an HB photonic liquid crystal fiber under influence of temperature is demonstrated.
