Chiral nematic liquid crystals are very interesting materials to infiltrate photonic crystal fibers since they are characterized by unique optical properties such as selective Bragg reflection, circular dichroism, and optical activity. In this paper the latest experimental results of the photonic crystal fibers filled with new chiral nematic liquid crystals are presented. Spectral properties of the light propagating in the photonic liquid crystal fibers have been measured and analyzed.
