Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel design method used for the birefringent interleaver is presented, which is based on Harris systematic design theory' with some improvements in respects of the approximation of the number of crystal used and the dispersion compensation of crystal materials. In our method, as optimal designing, the required frequency response ofinterleaver as the target function is specified in first step ofcalculation, and some basic design parameters such as the number of crystals and rotation angles of each element will be automatically obtained. This design method is flexible for different crystal materials and is extensible for the consideration ofthe manufacture tolerances and the temperature compensation ofcrystal. As a design example, simulation results are presented and relative analyses are taken.
