Paper Abstract

Acoustic vibrations on standard SMF fiber generates long period grating inside optical fiber that can be used for various filtering applications. Tunable acousto-optic filters are currently used in dynamically controllable optical signal processors. The combination of acoustic and optical technologies presents some interesting reliability perspectives. This paper uses the framework of the development of an acousto-optic tunable filter to 1) demonstrate the wisdom and strength of design for reliability and 2) illustrate a robust approach to achieving qualification compliance in one design cycle for a product that uses technologies that are not mainstream to the telecom optical industry.
