Novel combinations of liquid crystalline materials for liquid crystals lasers tuning are presented. The cell is based on a three layer system, with two cholesteric films sandwiching a third layer containing an isotropic mixture of a photoluminescent dye. One of the cholesteric films has a wide band gap and the other one presents a narrow band gap, allowing the laser emission tuning over a wide spectral range, from UV to near IR. Further, using mixtures containing cholesteryl esters, a temperature control can be achieved.

Abstract

Novel combinations of liquid crystalline materials for liquid crystals lasers tuning are presented. The cell is based on a three layer system, with two cholesteric films sandwiching a third layer containing an isotropic mixture of a photoluminescent dye. One of the cholesteric films has a wide band gap and the other one presents a narrow band gap, allowing the laser emission tuning over a wide spectral range, from UV to near IR. Further, using mixtures containing cholesteryl esters, a temperature control can be achieved.
