Temperature dependent lasing was demonstrated in a dye-doped two-dimensional hexagonal photonic crystal made of holographic polymer-dispersed liquid crystals (LCs) along Gamma M direction in TE polarization. A redshift in lasing peaks was observed as the temperature increased from 25 to 45 degrees C. The downward movement of photonic band of TE polarization, majorly caused by the decrease in the anisotropy of LC droplets with the increase in temperature, is responsible for the redshift in lasing peaks.
