A differential gain-dependent phase shift between the core mode and the cladding mode can be all-optically tuned by a cw 975 nm pump light for Mach-Zehnder interferometers using two abrupt fiber tapers in a 1.2-cm-long highly Er/Yb codoped fiber. The highly doped fiber has large absorption and emission cross sections to efficiently introduce the phase shift… (More)
A differential gain-dependent phase shift between the core- and cladding-mode can be efficiently and all-optically tuned by a cw 975nm pump light for Mach-Zehnder interferometers using successive abrupt fiber tapers on a 1.2-cm-long Er/Yb-codoped fiber.
We demonstrate miniature Mach-Zehnder-interferometer with a device length of 179.5 μm using two micro-abrupt-tapers in a cladding-depressed strongly-guiding fiber. The index variation of 2×10<sup>−3</sup> from a 6.3 picoliter optical liquid can cause 1.6 nm wavelength-shift.
