Abstract

Electrically-driven motion of micro-fluids in air-silica microstructure fiber (ASMF) was studied. Tunability was also obtained by actively controlling the motion and position of fluids by thermal expansion of air in the channels using capillary tube heaters. The results showed that the positioning of fluids along micro-capillary channels inside the fiber enables the manipulation of light at narrow or large bandwidths.
