A Bragg grating was fabricated in a D-shaped fiber that was subsequently coated with an α-Si:H semiconductor film. The reflected spectrum was optically controlled by means of evanescent coupling, shifting to shorter wavelengths with increased control-light power. The effective nonlinearity of the fiber was 2.0 × 10-10 cm2/W . The device was optically tuned by 4.3 × 10-4 nm/mW , leading to 54% (>3-dB) depth modulation for 230 mW of power.
