A new concept of electro-optically reconfigurable waveguide superimposed gratings with their widely controllable transmission characteristics are present. It is based on two types of superimposed refractive index gratings, electronically induced in an electro-optically active core. These gratings can be independently switched ON and OFF or both simultaneously activated with the controllable weighting factor. In this case its transmission characteristics represent double-dip rejection band spectrum with independent control of the dip positions and bandwidth. This simple concept opens opportunities for developing a number of tunable devices for integrated optics by use of the proposed design as a building block.
