Abstract

In this paper we present the design and applications of flexible photonic membranes. We discuss their use as versatile photonic layers in the framework of lab-on-fibre applications, specifically focusing on the design of angular robust spectral filters. We also show alternative routes to their fabrication, highlighting the opportunities and limitations associated to each approach. Finally we present our preliminary results on the all-optical control over flexible membranes, as a potential method to fine-tune their opto-mechanical properties to the required application.
