Abstract
We propose a tunable optical switching based on thermo-optic nonlinear effect in an electro-microtube ring resonator (EMRR) made by a capillary embedded with a heating wire. The significant modes shift in the EMRR for nonlinear switching are attributed to a huge joule heat generated by the heating wire, leading to the resonant wavelength shifts over 0.9nm when using 250mA current. In our viewpoints, with such a significant performance, the EMRR may be practically applied to switching, optical filter, sensing and optical network process.
