Abstract

Integrating an active medium with a filtering component can bring new functionalities compared with configurations where the two stages (units) are placed in series. We exploit this phenomenon and demonstrate all-optical tunable filters based on long-period fiber gratings written in an active optical fiber. The tuning is obtained via optical pumping at 980nm.
