Planar photonic crystals infiltrated with liquid crystals: optical characterization of molecule orientation

Nematic liquid crystals are infiltrated into InP-based planar photonic crystals. Optical measurements as a function of temperature and polarization are used to study the average director field configuration in the nanometer-size holes: a planar equilibrium state is found
