An integrated direct UV written apodised planar Bragg grating reflector with 154 GHz (1.23 nm) of thermo-optic tuning in the C-band and a response speed 31 GHz/ms is demonstrated. The degree and speed of tuning of the fabricated device indicates potential application in dynamic optical networks, as an optical add-drop multiplexer.
