Paper Abstract

Edge illuminated holographic Bragg filters formed in phenanthrenequinone (PQ) doped poly (methyl-methacrylate) (MMA) are evaluated for optical code division multiple access (OCDMA) coding and decoding applications. The polymer characteristics are optimized using a factorial design technique. Experimental cascaded Bragg filters are formed to select two different wavelengths with a fixed distance between the gratings and are directly coupled to a fiber measurement system. The configuration and tolerances of the cascaded gratings are shown to be practical for time/wavelength OCDMA applications.
