Abstract

A one-wavelength tuning method is proposed to solve the tuning difficulty in a tunable optical filter based on cascaded cells. This method ensures that the optical path difference variation of all of the cells for the tuning is less than one wavelength and lowers the relative tuning accuracy requirement. Simulations show that different cells have different cross talk and loss deterioration when they undergo an error in optical path difference between the O-ray and the E-ray. An optimal error ratio in each cell is obtained. Under the error ratio, the deterioration from the random error in every cell is further simulated.
