Paper Abstract

A wavelength tunable optical filter based on cascaded Liquid-Crystal Fabry-Perot (LC-FP) cavity with many working units has been proposed and simulated in this paper. By choosing different material and according geometric parameters, we simulated the structure in the wavelength of medium infrared (IR)(3-5μm) and far IR(8-14μm) with the algorithm of thin film matrix equation and iterative finite-difference. Finally, we give the spectrum of the structure under different driving-voltage. Combing this structure with uncooled infrared focal plane array (IRFPA), the image of many spectral bands can be obtained in one picture frame by applying different driving-voltage on each unit. Compared with other design, this structure has the advantages of wide free spectral range (FSR), compact integration, low cost and high stability.
