In this PhD thesis an experimental and numerical investigation of liquid crystal infiltrated photonic bandgap fibers (LCPBGs) is presented. A simulation scheme for modeling LCPBG devices including electrical tunability is presented. New experimental techniques, boundary coating and the applications of monomer added LCs, are investigated. Waveplates based on LCPBGs and a tunable polarization maintaining filter are developed. An on-chip tunable notch filter based on long period gratings is presented. Furthermore, the application of a LCPBG device for the electrical control of a fiber laser is demonstrated.
