Using a 4 4 × transfer matrix method, localized modes in orientation-disordered uniaxial medium have been investigated. We confirm that localized modes origin from the randomness of spatial orientation of optical axes. The misalignment of the optical axe provides the opportunity for a rearrangement of the localized modes. The number of localize mode also closely relative to the spatial orientation of optical axis. Numerical results indicate that it is possible to adjust the localized modes
