Abstract

We propose three types of narrowband optical filters based on a Fox–Smith resonator. We demonstrate that by choosing the appropriate combination of coating materials on each prism facet, one can design either a high reflectance or a high transmittance optical filter, suitable for low bit rate optical communication applications with International Telecommunication Union-Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) standards. We also show the possibility of designing an optical filter having a desirable finite reflectance/transmittance ratio with simultaneous peaks at ITU-T standard wavelengths. Such filters could be suitable for wavelength tuning applications.
