The effect of anisotropy on defect mode peculiarities in cholesteric liquid crystals is investigated. The light transmission through the cholesteric liquid crystal layer with an anisotropic layer defect inside is solved by Ambartsumian’s layer addition modified method. Two cases are considered. In the first case, it is assumed that the defect layer is non-absorbing, and the effect of refraction anisotropy on the reflection, relative photonic density of states and the total field intensity…
