Abstract

Transmission filters for the terahertz domain having a shaped bandpass have been modeled and demonstrated. The filter designs were based on the desired filter type and bandwidth, and implemented by cascading quarter wave phase shifted fiber Bragg gratings written in Topas polymer subwavelength fiber. As an example, a 5-pole Chebyshev filter with <3GHz bandwidth was designed and fabricated. Experimental and simulated results are in good agreement.
