Abstract
We present system-level characterization results of a MEMS tunable optical filter with a flat-top passband and narrow transition bands. The proposed optical bandpass filter can continuously change its optical bandwidth and center wavelength using a free-space grating and a variable-aperture MEMS reflector. We observed that the receiver sensitivity degradation is within 1 dB across the 6-dB optical passband.
