Abstract

Solid-spaced filters are composed of one or several thin wafers of excellent optical quality acting as Fabry–Perot spacer layers. We study the different steps of the design and the manufacture of filters following dense-wavelength-division-multiplexing specifications. The design method of such filters requires a tight synergy between numerical simulations and experimental characterizations to correct possible thickness errors. Experimental results of the manufacture and characterization of a three-cavity narrow-bandpass filter and of an interleaver filter are given.
