Paper Abstract

We report on the realization and investigation of a novel `continuous fiber' device structure whose spectral response is that of a comb-type bandpass filter. Filter response was investigated as a function of overlay refractive index and thickness for both oil and solid-state overlays. Passband linewidths (FWHM) of < 5 nm, insertion losses of 0.5 dB and free spectral range 25 - 250 nm have been demonstrated. The filter response was tuned over a 45 nm range by variation of the overlay superstrate index. In addition, the use of lithium niobate as the overlay offers the potential for electro-optic tuning and this topic is currently being investigated.
