abstract
We have developed a simulation method which is capable of simulating the emissive properties of luminescent dyes inside uniaxial anistropic thin film microcavities. The effect of the microcavity on the spectrum, polarization and angular distribution of the emitted light can be calculated. The method uses plane wave decomposition of the electric field of a dipole antenna in a uniaxial medium and a scattering matrix formalism to account for interference and reflection from the various interfaces in the device. We apply this method to simulate the behaviour of photoluminescent dyes in liquid crystal devices. We investigate the emission both outside the device and into waveguided modes inside the liquid crystal device. The polarization properties of the emitted light are also examined. We compare the emission properties of dichroic and non-dichroic dyes in such devices.
