Abstract

We present what is to our knowledge the first demonstration of a tunable fiber Bragg grating device in polymer optical fiber that utilizes a thin-film resistive heater deposited on the surface of the fiber. The polymer fiber was coated via photochemical deposition of a Pd Cu metallic layer with a procedure induced by vacuum–ultraviolet radiation at room temperature. The resulting device, when wavelength tuned via joule heating, underwent a wavelength shift of 2 nm for a moderate input power of 160 mW , a wavelength to input power coefficient of 13.4 pm mW , and a time constant of 1.7 s 1 .
