Abstract

A novel shape-adjustable narrowband optical filter utilizing stimulated Brillouin scattering in an optical fiber is proposed and demonstrated. In this scheme, binary-phase-shift-keying modulation is applied to the pump wave to broaden and shape the Brillouin gain spectrum. By choosing an appropriate modulation data pattern, we realized a flat-top steep-cutoff optical bandpass filter with a 3-dB bandwidth of 1.5 GHz and a 10-dB bandwidth of 2 GHz is realized. In addition, a tunable optical notch filter is also realized by deamplification of the anti-Stokes wave.
