Abstract

We present an all-fiber tunable bandpass filter based on a combination of a force-induced long-period fiber grating and a fiber coil made along a double cladding fiber. The transmission wavelength can be tuned to be in a range of more than 100 nm by changing the grating period mechanically. We can control the transmission amplitude of the bandpass filter by adjusting the periodic force on the double cladding fiber. The ambient temperature causes a positive shift in the transmission wavelength. Such a device is useful for tunable laser applications and fiber-optic sensors.
