Tunable Filter Module
Aug 2010DiCon Fiberoptics Inc.Request Info
DiCon Fiberoptics has announced a new tunable optical filter module
for the GP750, a fiber optic test system that is able to automate fiber optic switches,
fiber optical variable attenuators and, now, tunable optical filters. Based on proprietary
microelectromechanical systems technology, the tunable filter can be tuned to demultiplex
a signal in either the C- or L-band with a channel spacing of either 50 or 100 GHz.
The tunable filter technology allows for precise wavelength tuning and is suitable
for test applications in optical channel performance monitoring, reconfigurable
optical add/drop multiplexer systems, noise suppression and signal tracking. The
fast tuning speed of 30 ms makes it possible to tune quickly and accurately over
a number of channels.
