Abstract
Properties of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) filled with nematic liquid crystals (LC) can be easily tuned by using an external electric field. In this work we focus on electrical tuning of index-guiding photonic liquid crystal fibers (PLCF) based on fibers made from multi-component glasses with an enhanced value of the refractive index. The impact of an electric field on light propagation in index guiding PLCFs has been carefully studied and the effective tuning of phase birefringence has been observed experimentally. The dependence of time response on the modulation level will be presented. In the end we will show polarization controller made with two pair of electrodes.
