Abstract

In order to implement a fiber-optic Fabry–Perot tunable filter with a simple configuration, a concave mirror is made at the end of the optical fiber. The concave mirror is fabricated by attaching a thin polycarbonate (PC) film on the fiber end, pressing the PC film with a fiber ball to form a dimple, and then depositing a multilayer dielectric mirror. The concave mirror aligned to the fiber core makes the cavity alignment easy with a simple alignment configuration. Because of the self-alignment function of this cavity, a small, reliable, and fast filter could be fabricated.
