All-optical Switching in Photonic Structures with Liquid-crystal Defects

Miroshnichenko, Andrey; Pinkevych, Igor; Kivshar, Yuri


We show that tunable nonlinearity of nematics can be employed for all-optical operations in photonic structures. We show numerically that the light-induced Freedericksz transition can lead to sharp switching and diode operation.
