Paper Abstract

A commercial miniature monochromator, adapted with GRIN lens optics, has been characterized as a mechanically tunable wavelength demultiplexer for use in fiber optic transmission systems. The device is capable of selectively demultiplexing a single channel from a plurality of wavelength multiplexed channels over a broad spectral range (750 to 900 nm), with an insertion loss less than 3.5 dB, and an optical crosstalk rejection greater than 20 dB at wavelengths ±6 nm from the transmission peak of the tuned channel.
