Abstract

We propose a novel and practical method to exactly measure the transient reflectance spectra (TRS) of the adaptive filters based on dynamic population gratings. The modulating signals applied to the laser source play an important role. We specially designed a train of triangular amplitude modulated pulses with a small duty to modulate the laser frequency, and then the TRS was obtained from the grating responses to this pulse train. The measured half-zero-point bandwidths of the filter with and without 2.6  m cavity length are 20 and 60 MHz, respectively. Our research also indicates that the relatively high input power and a short cavity length may enhance the antiperturbation ability of lasers.
