Paper Abstract

A small compact all-fibre single mode interferometer is described which uses successive couplers fabricated in tandem. Application of a voltage across one arm coated with a resistive material causes switching, due to the thermo-optic effect. We report the use of this device as a tunable wavelength filter.
