Abstract
Mesogenic molecules can spontaneously organize to form liquid crystals with particular optical properties. Chiral nematic liquid crystals form one-dimensional structures with well-defined pitch which can be used as mirrors in a lasing setup. Nematic liquid crystals in the cladding of a silicon on insulator waveguide can be used to change the effective refractive index of a ring resonator. In both cases, the anisotropy of the liquid crystal determines the resonance wavelength.
