Schematic view of the device (a) and micrograph of the fabricated device (b). The LCPBG fiber is placed between two v-grooves having gold electrodes deposited on each side wall of the two grooves. (c) Top-view scanning electron micrograph image of the fabricated groove with electrodes. The width of the groove is 91 μ m .

Curves (a)–(c) plot the normalized PBG transmission spectrum of the LCPBG fiber at V s = 0 V together with the polarization-dependent transmission spectrum for three different electrode configurations, which effectively rotates the direction of the field in steps of 45 ° . (d) Activation loss and the polarization extinction ratio at 1520 nm as a function of applied voltage for electrode configuration EC3. The inset shows an illustration of the device before the top lid is mounted.
