Optimum design for maximum wavelength resolution for an edge filter-based ratiometric system

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper provides a straightforward design method for achieving a maximum wavelength resolution for an edge filter-based ratiometric system. An analysis of the influence of a range of factors on the resolution of the ratiometric wavelength measurement system was carried out. The investigation shows that, for a given input optical signal and when the working wavelength range is known, it is relatively straightforward to select an optimum slope for the edge filter that will yield a maximum resolution for the system. An experimental verification is carried out using a tunable laser and three macrobending fibre edge filters, with a good match between experimental and simulation results. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.
