AbstractPhotonic liquid crystal fibers (PLCFs) can be categorized in two principal groups: index guiding PLCFs and photonic bandgap PLCFs. In this paper we focus on index guiding PLCFs in which effective refractive index of the micro-structured cladding filled with liquid crystal is lower than refractive index of the fiber core. In such fibers broadband propagation of light is observed and also effective tuning of guiding properties is possible (i.e. birefringence, polarization dependent losses or attenuation tuning). Such fibers could be used for dynamic control of light in various fiber optics systems, including optical fiber sensing setups. © 2011 Copyright Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
