Abstract
The accurate analysis of optical waveguides is an important issue when designing devices for optical communication. Waveguides combined with liquid crystals have great potential because they allow waveguide tuning over a wide range using low voltages. In this paper, we present calculations that combine an advanced algorithm for calculating liquid crystal behavior and a finite-element mode solver that is able to incorporate the full anisotropy of the materials. Calculation examples demonstrate the validity of our program.
