Abstract

In this paper, we give an overview of recent results on switching of light in fibers with internal electrodes. Polarization rotation, nanosecond gating, and wavelength switching in fiber Bragg gratings and in long period gratings are discussed. Applications are exemplified in Q-switching fiber lasers and in RF-signal filtering.
