PROJECT TITLE :
Unique Temperature Dependence of Selectively Liquid-Crystal-Filled Photonic Crystal Fibers
We tend to demonstrate a unique temperature-dependent characteristic of the selectively liquid-crystal-filled photonic crystal fiber, that is realized by a selectively infiltrating liquid crystal into a single air hole located at the second ring close to the core of the PCF. 3-resonance dips are observed in the transmission spectrum. Theoretical and experimental investigations reveal that the 3-resonance dips all result from the coupling between the LP01 core mode and therefore the rod modes, i.e., LP03 and LP51. Then, we notice that the dip shift induced by temperature shows smart agreements with the thermo-optic performance of the LC utilized. Furthermore, the dips shift greatly with changes in temperature, providing a methodology to attain temperature measurement in such a compact structure.
