We investigate theoretically, with the aid of numerical calculations based on a Landau-de Gennes theory, how two cubic cholesteric blue phases of a chiral liquid crystal, BP I and BP II, are stabilized when a guest component, such as a polymer network, is introduced and replace energetically costly defect regions. We show that the temperature range of stable BP I is significantly widened by the guest component, while the stability of BP II is only modestly enhanced.
