Hydrostatic pressure effects in weakly twisted anisotropic media: An analogy between highly birefringent fibers and chiral nematic liquid crystals
- Tomasz Woliński
A comparative description of hydrostatic pressure effects in slowly twisting anisotropic media such as highly birefringent optical fibers and chiral nematic liquid crystal based on the mode-coupling theory is presented The problem is analyzed in the Mauguin limit, where large linear birefringence of the medium dominates over the twisting effect. Hydrostatic pressure is found to slightly modify a weak twist coupling between the local modes, but can strongly influence polarization properties of the light propagating in the media creating new pressure sensing possibilities.
