The paper presents the results of design, manufacturing, and characterization of a hybrid broad band in-line fiber-optic device. It uses nematic liquid crystal as cladding with electro-steering properties in a biconical optical fiber taper structure. Liquid crystal mixtures denoted as 6CHBT and E7 are designed for electric as well as temperature control of electromagnetic wave propagation in a broad wavelength range. The applied taper with 10±0.5 μm diameters has losses lower than 0.5 dB indoi:10.1155/2019/1617685 fatcat:j2lu6jprjjcjnhbkhx2ri3jl7m
