The success of volume production of 200GHz and 100GHz spacing WDM band pass filters relies on several critical issues: (a) a robust, high tolerance design; (b) optimized machine configurations; (c) a stable and repeatable process; and (d) an accurate and reliable optical monitoring system. At Corning NetOptix, significant effort has been made to optimize the chamber and process parameters in order to control the optical performance, the reproducibility and the useful area. This results in increased production yields and excellent filter performance. The results of 200GHz and 100GHz spacing WDM filters manufactured at Corning NetOptix are presented.
