We propose a tunable inline mode converter based on the acousto-optic effect in optical microwires. A theoretical model is developed to analyze the interaction between the acoustic waves and the optical modal coupling in microwires. We show that adjusting the acoustic wave frequency we can switch between different optical modes. The conversion efficiency can be adjusted through the acoustic wave amplitude.
