Abstract
We investigate an acousto-optic tunable filter setup for wavelength division multiplexing telecommunication applications in wideband C (100 nm around 1550 nm). Anisotropic Bragg diffraction of light in TeO2 bulk crystal is first investigated experimentally and theoretically in a quasi-collinear interaction configuration. Based on those characterizations, we propose a double-pass optical beam which allows us to improve the filter performances in terms of crosstalk and selectivity: the full width at half maximum and the sidelobe level are reduced.
