Tunable Optical Filters


Index - Optical Filters

A Tunable optical filter is ideal for any application requiring wavelength tuning. DiCon Fiberoptics, a recognized leader in designing and manufacturing optical components offers a range of tunable optical filters to suit any application.

Tunable Optical Filter Applications

  • Optical Channel Performance Monitoring
  • Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexer (ROADM)
  • Optical Signal Noise Suppression
  • Optical Signal Tracking

MEMS Tunable Optical Filter

DiCon's MEMS tunable optical filter offers many advantages over a traditional tunable optical filter; increased accuracy & resolution, a faster tuning speed, as well as a durability that will last for over a billion tuning cycles, all in a compact package. Options are available for either 100 GHz or 50 GHz channel spacing as well as operation in either the O-band, C-band or L-band wavelength ranges.

MEMS Tunable Optical Bandpass Filter

Manually Tunable Optical Filter

DiCon's Manually Tunable optical bandpass filter is used to manually adjust the center wavelength of a narrow optical bandpass filter over a 30nm wavelength range, centered at 1550nm. Adjustment of the center wavelength is accomplished by tilting the bandpass filter with a high precision micrometer.
