Wavelength tuning of the photonic band gap of an achiral nematic liquid crystal filled into a chiral polymer scaffold

Abstract:

In this paper, we demonstrate electric field-induced wavelength tuning of the entire photonic band-gap of an achiral nematic liquid crystal (LC) filled into a chiral polymer scaffold. This chiral polymer scaffold has been formed by creating a template of a chiral nematic LC phase, which remarkably does not compromise the optical finesse of the band-gap when compared to that of a conventional, polymer-stabilized chiral nematic LC. We present results on the spectral shift and...
