Abstract

Using fiber photosensitivity, we have made efficient, application-specific rocking filters from conventional monomode telecommunications optical fiber. Filters with a length of 10.89 m, a bandwidth of 58 nm, and a transmission of 99% at the resonant wavelength of 1540 nm are reported. The filters have applications for switching 200-fs solitons.
