High slope efficiency, low threshold and wavelength tunable liquid crystal lasers using bimesogenic materials: a route to quasi-continuous working and incoherent optical pumping?

  • Published 2008 in 2008 IEEE/LEOS Winter Topical Meeting Series


coherent microscopic light sources. Chiral nematic, N*, (or cholesteric) liquid crystals spontaneously form a 1-dimensional photonic band gap for light due to the anisotropic nature of the molecules and their selforganizing supra-molecular structure. Through an intricate interaction of double twist cylinders Blue Phases I & II self assemble to form a… (More)
