Abstract

Dual, independently addressable thin-film resistive heaters fabricated in a multilayer geometry on the surface of an optical fiber provide a new, flexible means for thermally tuning the properties of intracore gratings. In particular, control of the current that is applied to each of these heaters permits the chirp and the central wavelength of the grating to be adjusted independently. The designs and simple fabrication procedures for these types of device, the important physics of heat flow in them, and a tunable add–drop filter that demonstrates essential aspects of their operation are described.
