Fiber Fabry-Perot Tunable Filter | FFP-TF

Micron Optics’ patented FFP-TF, fiber Fabry-Perot (FFP) Tunable Filter achieves high finesse and maintains low loss in a rugged package.

Product Description

The key to the simple and elegant design of the FFP tunable filter is the lensless all- fiber construction. There are no collimating optics or lenses, thus with the FFP tunable filter Micron Optics has eliminated the pitfalls of other Fabry-Perot component technologies, including misalignment, environmental sensitivity, and extraneous modes.

The FFP tunable filter follows the Airy function so closely that engineers can design it into the opto- electronic OEM systems knowing that it will provide results that match to the theoretical mathematical model.

For more than two decades, the Micron Optics FFP-TF has proven its capabilities in WDM applications, and has satisfied the ever-increasing performance demands of the telecom market including optical network monitoring, signal conditioning and dynamic networking and transport. Additionally, the filter continually proves itself as the key enabling technology for world-class test instruments.
