We propose a new type of all-fiber device for inter-band router using a novel hybrid waveguide-MEMS technology. Both continuous and discrete band-routing functions are realized by precise twist control over the fused coupling region, which results in π phase shift between the output ports. Experimentally we demonstrate inter-band routing functions between O and C-band as well as between E and L-band with a low insertion loss, wide bandwidth of operation, high channel isolation and fast response.
