Enhanced FFP Tunable Filters

ATLANTA, Feb. 22, 2008 -- Micron Optics Inc. said enhancements made to its current line of fiber Fabry-Perot (FFP) tunable filters include an available finesse value of 16,000, widely tunable filters with PM (polarization maintaining) fiber, and improved bandwidth variation.
The fiber Fabry-Perot tunable filter, the FFP-TF2, is now commercially available with a finesse value of 16,000, Micron Optics said, more than tripling previously offered standard finesse values. These very high finesse filters can be used for applications requiring filter response curve with a sharp top and very steep sides; typical contrast values are at 80 dB. Certain applications which previously required two filters cascaded to achieve this high finesse will now only need one FFP-TF2 filter.
Users can also select a widely tunable filter equipped with PM fiber. Micron Optics said it was the first company to introduce a one-peak 340-nm-wide tuning range Fabry-Perot filter; now this same filter is also available in a PM fiber version.
The company said it has also made significant improvements in the bandwidth variation of the FFP-TF2. Bandwidth variation over a single order is now a tight +/-5 percent, which it said is unheard of in widely tunable filter performance.
