We propose and demonstrate the first polarization-independent electro-optically tunable wavelengh filter with single-mode waveguides. The Ti:LiNbO3 filter utilizes narrow-band electro-optic TE ↔ TM conversion and employs TE/TM polarization splitters in the input and output waveguides. The filter operates at 1.52 μm with a bandwidth of only 12 Å and can be electro-optically tuned over at least 110 Å at a tuning rate of 0.55 Å/V.
