A reflection type volume hologram is made inside a photorefractive single crystal fiber. The volume hologram is generated by interfering counter-propagating beams in the fiber. Since the volume hologram is very sensitive to wavelength, the hologram can be used as a narrowband filter. The filter can be tuned using the thermal or electrooptic effect of the photorefractive fiber.
