Abstract
In last few years a noticeable progress in the field of electrically tunable optical fibers was observed. Guiding properties of such fibers can be easily changed with transverse electric field. The efficiency of tuning could be improved if not only intensity of the electric field by also its direction could be adjusted. In this paper we present a new electrode assembly consisting six cylindrical microelectrodes surrounding the tunable optical fiber. In such configuration six different directions of the electric field can be easily obtained. Moreover by using more sophisticated nonsymmetrical steering the direction of the electric field can be arbitrarily defined.
