Paper Abstract

Interleaver allows existing DWDM filters designed for operation at wide channel spacing to be extended to DWDM system with narrow channel spacing. Birefringent crystal interleaver is based on birefringence of crystal and interference of polarized light. The principle of approaching the flattop passband spectrum shape is analyzed by Jones matrix. All fiber unbalanced Mach-Zehnder interferometer interleaver and Michelson interferometer with GT resonator interleaver are also presented. Passband center wavelength precision and chromatic dispersion are discussed.
