Electrical and thermal tuning of quality factor and free spectral range of optical resonance of nematic liquid crystal microdroplets.

Abstract

We experimentally study the effect of temperature and electric field on the quality (Q) factor and free spectral range (FSR) of whispering-gallery-mode optical resonance of dye-doped nematic liquid crystal microdroplets. Both the Q factor and the FSR are highly sensitive to the temperature and electric field and are tunable. The Q factor decreases, whereas… (More)
