Abstract

We demonstrate a compact short-pass filter fabricated by integrating a microfiber (1μm in diameter) with a low-index substrate. By varying the interaction length (from 0.65  to3mm) between the microfiber and the substrate for wavelength-dependent evanescent leakage, the cutoff wavelength has been tuned over a wide range of 400nm. Typical rejection loss is higher than 40dB with insertion loss as low as 0.3dB. The fiber-diameter-dependent cutoff is also investigated, suggesting that the filter can be applied over a wide spectral range from 600to1500nm. The microfiber-based short-pass filters demonstrated show advantages of compact size, wideband applicability, simple structure, high rejection loss, and compatibility with miniaturized fiber devices.

(a) Schematic of the short-pass filter assembled with a Mg F 2 -substrate-supported microfiber. An SCS is launched into the left-hand side, and the output from the right-hand side is sent to an OSA. Inset, a top view of the contact area of the microfiber and the substrate. (b) Optical microscope image of an Mg F 2 -supported 1 μ m diameter microfiber guiding a supercontinuum light. From the left side to the right side, the color of the scattering light changes from orange to yellow, green, and blue in succession.

Typical transmission spectra of a short-pass filter. The blue (marked with “Air-clad”) and red (marked with “ Mg F 2 -supported”) curves represent the output spectra before and after the integration with the substrate, respectively, and the bold black curve represents the normalized transmission. The diameter of the microfiber is 1.04 μ m , and the interaction length is 1.1 mm .
