Paper Abstract

Ground-based, narrow-band, high throughput optical filters are required for optical links from deep space. We report on the development of a tunable filter assembly that operates at telecommunication window of 1550 nm. Low insertion loss of 0.5 dB and bandwidth of 90 pm over a 2000 nm operational range of detectors have been achieved.
