Paper Abstract

Birefrengent filter is a kind of interference filters based on the medium birefren-gence property and the polarization interference principle. The typical birefrengent filters are Lyot's and Solc's models. Recently, Solc filter and its fiber-optic system have much interests for such potential applications as astrophotography,tunable elements in dye laser, submarine communication and in-line monomode fiber-optic birefrengentfilter which can be used to create multichannel communication lines from a monomode fiber [1-4]. In this paper, we will analyse an equivalent structure of Solc filters by using Jones calculus [5] of polarized optics. Moreover, we consider the influence of the imperfection of the polarizers on Sole filter and give a general formula of the spectral transmittance of Sole filter. Finally, the practical design and manufacture of equiva-lent Solc filter in monomode fiber is presented.
