Abstract

We introduce an optical crossconnect architecture using all-fiber technology. The key components are synthesized fiber Bragg gratings written using a position weighting technique. The fiber Bragg gratings are used to perform the required combination of wavelength filtering and space routing The grating synthesis allows optimization of all important grating characteristics: spectral flatness, dispersion, edges roll-off, and side lobes.
