2007 (English)In: Journal of the Optical Society of America. B, Optical physics, ISSN 0740-3224, Vol. 24, no 9, 2165-2171 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The optical tuning of InP-based planar photonic crystals (PhCs) infiltrated with a photoresponsive liquid crystal system is presented. Photoinduced phase transitions of a liquid crystal blend doped with azobenzene molecules are used to tune the optical response of PhC cavities. This process is found to be reversible and stable. Several tuning conditions are analyzed in terms of the blend phase diagram.
