Tunable filters with a wide tunable rang have been found wide applications and be the key component in fiber optical communication system and fiber sensor system. It is hard to fabricate a fiber Fabry-Perot tunable filter. In this paper, the principles of Fabry-Perot filter is introduced, and a novel tunable Fabry-Perot filter is designed and fabricated. The fabricated process of the tunable filter is described and the transmission spectrum of tunable F-P filter in experiment is given and discussed. The tunable F-P filter has the advantages of simple structure, low modulated voltage and cost effectiveness. The filter can be applied to wavelength interrogation in fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensing system to detect the drift of the fiber Bragg wavelength.
