All-fiber devices based on photonic crystal fibers with integrated electrodes
2009 (English)In: Optics Express, ISSN 1094-4087, Vol. 17, no 3, 1660-1665 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A special kind of microstructured optical fiber is proposed and fabricated in which, in addition to the holey region (solid core and silica-air cladding), two large holes exist for electrode insertion. Either Bi-Sn or Au-Sn alloys were selectively inserted into the large holes forming two parallel, continuous and homogeneous internal electrodes. We demonstrate the production of a monolithic device and its use to externally control some of the guidance properties (e. g. polarization) of the fiber.
