In-plane steering of nematicon waveguides across an electrically tuned interface

In-plane steering of nematicon waveguides across an electrically tuned interface
In-plane steering of nematicon waveguides across an electrically tuned interface
We study the interaction of a spatial soliton waveguide with a voltage defined and electrically tuned interface in nematic liquid crystals, whereby the optic axis is reoriented through the use of patterned electrodes. We investigate refraction and total internal reflection of nematicon wavepackets, disclosing the role of anisotropy and obtaining a remarkable in-plane steering as large as 55°.

Abstract

We study the interaction of a spatial soliton waveguide with a voltage defined and electrically tuned interface in nematic liquid crystals, whereby the optic axis is reoriented through the use of patterned electrodes. We investigate refraction and total internal reflection of nematicon wavepackets, disclosing the role of anisotropy and obtaining a remarkable in-plane steering as large as 55°.
