Paper Abstract

This paper reports how to realize a new type of tunable filter using the Faraday effect. The properties of a Fabry-Perot etalon whose cavity is made with a Faraday rotator are recalled. The analysis of the polarization state of the emergent light permits us to find the configuration of the device to realize such a tunable filter. This latter finds application in wavelength demultiplexing.
