Abstract

We demonstrate frequency-controlled angular steering of light-induced solitary waveguides using dual frequency nematic liquid crystals. Specially designed comb-shaped electrodes allow the maximization of the in-plane electro-optic angular deviation of the soliton Poynting vector, modulating the resulting walk-off up to an overall deflection of 13 ° when the frequency of the applied voltage goes from 1 to 100 kHz.
