Abstract

Photonic crystals (PCs) have many applications in order to control light-wave propagation. A novel type of two-dimensional anisotropic PC is investigated band gap and optical properties as a hollow semiconductor nanorod with nematicliquid crystals (LC). The PC structure composed of an anisotropic nematicLC in semiconductor square hollow nanorod is designed using the plane wave expansion (PWE) method and finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. It has been used 5CB (4-pentyl-4'-cyanobiphenyl) as LC core, and Tellurium (Te) as square hollow nanorod material.The PC with hollow Tenanorod with nematicLC is compared with the PC with solid Tenanorodand the PC with hollow Tenanorod. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
