Abstract

The light polarization has an effect on spectral properties of a multilayered photonic crystal infiltrated with a bistable chiral-tilted homeotropic nematic liquid crystal (LC) as a defect layer. By varying the direction of polarization of incident, linearly polarized light interacting with the birefringent LC, the tunability of defect modes in wavelength and amplitude and the broadening of the low-transmittance range can be realized in the transmission spectrum. The LC features two optically stable states and two voltage-sustained states. The bistability makes the device of low energy consumption. Such a hybrid can be used as not only a wavelength selector, optical shutter or multichannel switch but also a stopband-tunable device.
