Fabrication methods of optical resonant filters with a close-to-rectangle filtering profile
 

Summary: Fabrication methods of optical resonant filters
with a close-to-rectangle filtering profile
Rabi Rabady and Ivan Avrutsky
The potential applications of optical resonant filters for optical communication systems can be significant.
Three approaches to achieve a close-to-rectangle filtering profile for optical resonant filter were investi-
gated and proven experimentally. The combination of the filtering sharpness, which comes from the
resonance nature, and a flattened filtering window realized the close-to-rectangle filtering profile that can
enhance the bandwidth efficiency. 2004 Optical Society of America

1. Introduction
Optical resonant filters can be an alternative for
Bragg gratings filters1,2 that are used for notch filter-
ing in modern optical communications. Bragg grat-
ings can be realized reliably and with acceptable
accuracy in positioning the center wavelength of the
notch-filtering window. Moreover, they can be mod-
ified to compensate for group velocity dispersion and
to reduce the sideband effects by use of apodized in-
dex profile gratings. In this paper we investigate
the potential for the use of optical resonant filters in
