Abstract

This paper presents the experimental results for compact (20-and 40-µm-long) electrooptically tuned deeply etched Fabry-Pérot (F-P) filters in InP-based material. Both the quantum-confined Stark effect (QCSE) and carrier-injection (C-I) effects were implemented to achieve tunability of these microcavity filters. Red and blue shifts of the transmission peaks in the order of 1 to 2 nm were observed for both effects, and the limitations on C-I due to thermal effect are clearly demonstrated and discussed. The advantages and disadvantages of both tuning mechanisms are highlighted.
