1 Product Bulletin Tunable Fabry-Perot Etalon Filters TB2500M Series The Tunable Fabry-Perot Etalon Filters , Key Features TB2500M Series , are suitable for DWDM High finesse development applications which require low loss, Low insertion loss high finesse and remote tunability. The Polarization independent TB2500M Fabry-Perot Etalon technology is Wide tuning range ideally suited for filtering Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE) from an optical Low tuning voltage signal, and for demultiplexing a single C- or L-band Tunable Filters are available wavelength from a DWDM spectrum. The Mountable on printed circuit board (PCB). Tunable filter can also be used in DWDM Optional integrated blocking Filters for C- or wavelength monitoring applications and most L- band available high performance test and measurement Applications applications. Demultiplexers for narrowband WDMs The Fabry-Perot Etalon consists of a pair of Amplified Spontaneous Emission (ASE). parallel, highly reflective mirrors separated by an suppression for Optical Fiber Amplifiers air gap.
2 Center wavelength selection is tuned (OFAs) and Tunable lasers using low-voltage piezoelectric material that Wavelength monitoring for power and/or precisely positions the mirror spacing that forms optical signal-to-noise ratio a high finesse Fabry-Perot cavity. This compact, High performance test and measurement electrically driven component can be easily applications mounted onto a printed circuit board (PCB). Sliding-frequency filtering for soliton transmission research The performance diagram shows a typical transmission spectrum after passing through the TB2500M (-STD1 and -STD2) Tunable filter .
