Paper Abstract

A GaAs/AlGaAs in-line fiber optic filter for wavelength division multiplexing applications is demonstrated. The device consists of a GaAs/AlGaAs anti-resonant reflecting optical waveguide (ARROW) evanescently coupled to a single mode fiber. At certain discrete wavelengths, light is coupled from the fiber to the ARROW, due to phasematching conditions. Sharp resonances are observed around the design wavelength of 830 nm. The 3 dB cutoff bandwidth for TE polarization is 0.5 nm and the rejection ratio is 9 dB.
