Abstract

We introduce quasi-periodic Fibonaccian phase defects into single-pitched cholesteric liquid crystalline systems. Numerical simulations of reflection spectra from the proposed systems demonstrate simultaneous red, green, and blue reflections or multiple photonic band gaps. Fundamental optical properties are discussed as functions of phase jump (orientational defect angles), unit lengths and the orders of Fibonacci systems.

(Color online) Schematic view of Fibonaccian defects in periodic cholesteric structures: F 2={AB} and F 3={BAB} with ϕ=0 and ϕ=π/2. A (blue) and B (red) are two units of the quasi-periodic Fibonacci system, i.e., F 0={A} and F 1={B}. ϕ is an orientational defect angle between the molecular director in A layer and that in B layer at the interface (yellow).

(Color online) Reflection spectra for the Fibonacci system F 4={ABBAB} with orientational defect angles (a) ϕ=0, (b) ϕ=π/3, (c) ϕ=π/2, and (d) ϕ=π/6. For all simulations, we have considered a RCP incident light and the R-CLC with refractive indices ne =1.78 and no =1.56, an optical pitch λP =532nm, and an unit length of A or B layer UL =1P.

(Color online) Reflection spectra for the Fibonacci systems F 5={BABABBAB}, F 6={ABBABBABABBAB}, and F 7={BABABBABABBABBABABBAB} with orientational defect angles (a) ϕ=π/3 and (b) π/2. Simulation conditions for CLCs and incident lights are the same as those of Fig. 2. Colors represent the reflectance calculated from the Fibonacci systems.

(Color online) Reflection spectra as a function of the unit length UL for the Fibonacci systems (a)F 4, (b)F 5, (c)F 6, and (d)F 7 with an orientational defect angle ϕ=π/3. UL is normalized with a cholesteric pitch P. Simulation conditions are fixed as those employed for calculations in Fig. 2 and colors refer to reflectance of the systems.
