Abstract

Temperature dependence of spatial inhomogeneity of real part of effective refractive index in nanosphere dispersed liquid crystal (NDLC) metamaterial at infrared frequencies is studied using the approach of Khoo et al. [1] and Monte Carlo modeling proposed recently in Refs. [2,3]. We show that the temperature is an important tuning parameter for an inhomogeneous NDLC below the temperature of nematic-isotropic liquid transition.
