A novel compact ultra-fast tunable fiber-loop filter is proposed. Although being implemented using currently available technologies, the filter tuning speeds are three orders of magnitude faster than other currently available filters - less than a nanosecond. The filter can be designed compact, and is immunized to external instabilities. By using compound configurations, multi-nanometer tuning range can be achieved, together with filter finesse of over 1000.
