Paper Abstract

We demonstrate a new all-fiber spectrometer based on acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) on cladding etched single-mode (SM) fiber. The spectrometer has a free spectral range (FSR) of 200 nm, a wavelength resolution of 2 nm, a dynamic range of 20 dB and a potential scanning rate of ~125 μs/sample. The spectrometer has the potential to be developed as a low-cost spectral monitoring device for dynamic gain equalizer (DGE) in Er-doped fiber amplifier modules.
