In this work a fast Bragg grating-based tuning device, working according to the mechanical compression of the fiber, is demonstrated. The device achieves a tuning range of 10 nm and presents tuning speeds up to 15 nm/ms. The component can function as the basic element in wavelength routers and add-drop multiplexers.
