  Theoretical studies on the terahertz liquid crystal filled photonic crystal fiber (PCF) are presented at different temperatures. By using the full vector finite element method, the transmitting properties of PCF's fundamental mode are simulated. The results show that the increment of temperature allows optimized PCF's birefringence to turn continuously from 1.2×10-3 to 2.4×10-3 and confine loss to be declined from 0.07 dB/m to 0.03 dB/m. However, its chromatic dispersion and transmission mode have a little variation with temperature effect. Our proposed PCF can also work as a tunable terahertz polarization controller.
