Products -> TUNABLE FILTERS -> SINGLE MODE
The Tunable Optical Filter is based on MEMS technology and is designed for ITU O, C and L band with 50 GHz or 100 GHz channel spacing. The highly reliable tuning mechanism uses an integrated micro-mirror to select the central wavelength of the filter. Switching time is below 50 ms, insertion loss is below 3 dB and full width half maximum can be either 0.3nm or 0.5nm.
The miniature package withstands rugged environments and the optical engine is optimized for lowest size (it only measures 14.6 x 11.2 x 9.1 mm) and is well suited for direct mounting on printed circuit boards. An interface board with UART and I2C/SMBus is also available.
Applications range from simple hand held spectrometers to tunable receivers.
