Paper Abstract

Filters for Wavelength Division Multiplexers with very straight slopes and virtually no ripple are designed. Filters for DWDM applications are shown with the simplest improvements. Filters designed with a variety of recipes that give similar results are analyzed for broad band seven cavity types. All the recipes use "Quarter-wave designs only" to simplify manufacturing. Filters with very broad bandpasses are designed. These filters use equivalent refractive indices for matching the admittance of the general filter to the environment that it is in. More than 14 cavities are possible. These are much sharper than typical long pass filters of the same blocking density.
