Paper Abstract

This paper describes a high performance dynamic gain equalizer (DGE) based on a diffractive MEMS structure, called the Grating Light ValveTM (GLVTM) device. The precise attenuation of the GLV-based DGE provides very low spectral ripple after equalization. Additionally, the GLV-based DGE has fine spectral resolution and high dynamic range. This paper will discuss applications of a DGE in optical networks, and experimental results showing performance characteristics of the GLV-based DGE are presented.
