Abstract

This study elucidates, for the first time, a novel band-tunable color cone lasing emission (CCLE) based on dye-doped cholesteric liquid crystal (DDCLC) films with various pitches. For several CLC cells with different pitches it was shown experimentally that the lasing band on the CCLE can be tuned among various color regions measured within different angular ranges. Some important features of the tunable CCLE are also identified and discussed. A spatially band-tunable color cone laser, based on a single DDCLC with a gradient pitch, is developed as a real application.
