Abstract

It is known that dispersive fiber has an LP01 mode cutoff wavelength that acts as a wavelength filter. With a dispersive polysiloxane polymer overlay on a side-polished single-mode fiber, an in-line tunable fiber short-pass filter with a tuning range of 400 nm 12501650 nm and a temperature variation of 15 C° was demonstrated. The rejection efficiency was greater than 50 dB, whereas the insertion and polarization-dependent losses were below 0.26 and 0.09 dB, respectively.
