Paper Abstract

A novel tunable optical filter structure based on an Opto-VLSI processor is proposed in this paper. The architecture is capable of dynamically tuning multiple pass-bands through reconfiguration of the size and shape of holographic diffractive gratings generated by the Opto-VLSI processor. Results for an experimental 3-passband tunable filter are presented confirming over 25dB of dynamic range and passband bandwidth of 2 nm.
