Liquid-crystal-filled photonic crystal for terahertz switch and filter

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The effects of magnetic birefringence of liquid crystal E7 on the photonic bandgaps and the transmitting properties in two-dimensional photonic crystal waveguides are investigated by using the plane wave expansion and finite-difference time domain methods. Detailed calculations on the shifts and variations in the frequency width of bandgaps reveal that under the control of an external magnetic field the two-dimensional liquid-crystal-filled photonic crystal waveguide can serve as a switch and continuously tunable bandpass filter at the terahertz wave band.
