|Issue Date:||Jan-2017||Publisher:||Elsevier B.V.||Source:||Rezaei, B., Giden, I. H., & Kurt, H. (2017). Tuning light focusing with liquid crystal infiltrated graded index photonic crystals. Optics Communications, 382, 28-35.||Abstract:||We perform numerical analyses of tunable graded index photonic crystals based on liquid crystals. Light manipulation with such a photonic medium is explored and a new approach for active tuning of the focal distance is proposed. The graded index photonic crystal is realized using the symmetry reduced unit element in two-dimensional photonic crystals without modifying the dielectric filling fraction or cell size dimensions. By applying an external static electric field to liquid crystals, their refractive indices and thus, the effective refractive index of the whole graded index photonic crystal will be changed. Setting the lattice constant to a=400 nm yields a tuning of 680 nm for focal point position. This property can be used for designing an electro–optic graded index photonic crystal-based flat lens with a tunable focal point. Future optical systems may have benefit from such tunable graded indexlenses. © 2016 Elsevier B.V.||URI:||https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0030401816306484?via%3Dihub
