Paper Abstract

The use of piezoelectric transducer and acoustooptically induced waves were proposed for mode field excitation on a single-mode microbend fiber taper structure. As the result the in-line fiber attenuator was proposed tuned easily by the transducer low power drive voltage which was fully telecommunication compatible. The tuning range was up to 13 dB and the excess losses not exceeded 0.3 dB typically.
