Paper Abstract

An optical filter has been developed in which the operating wavelength, linewidth, line shape and peak transmission can be independently controlled. In this filter, the optical interaction is controlled electro-optically thereby requiring much less drive power than similar filters using the acousto-optic interaction. A filter has been fabricated and tuned through the visible portion of the spectrum. The programming features of the filter are described in this paper.
