Abstract

We demonstrate two new approaches to broad-range tuning of fiber Bragg grating devices: amplified thermal tuning and programmable magnetic tuning. The thermal-strain tuning approach employs a novel configuration to amplify thermally induced wavelength shifts by use of a negative thermal-expansion component. The magnetic-strain tuning approach allows programmable and latchable wavelength shifts through magnetic interactions that induce controlled strain on the fiber grating. The advantages and disadvantages of these two techniques are contrasted.
