Liquid Crystals (LC) are excellent low loss large area programmable materials for smart optical device design leading to agile photonics. This paper describes work by the Riza group to enable intelligent system design from the fiber-optic realm to the freespace optics domain of applications. Specifically, novels works will be described in fiber-optic attenuator design, freespace optical scanners, fiber-optic switches, fiber-optic delay lines, and laser beam profilers. Both theory and experimental demonstrations will be highlighted.
