Manual Grating-Based Fiber Optic Tunable Filters

Photonwares’s Manual Grating-Based Fiber Optic Tunable Filter provides a simple way to adjust the center wavelength of narrow band over wide band. Wavelength tuning is achieved by rotating a grating using a micrometer.  Based on a proprietary optics, Photonwares offers extremely low insertion loss, high stability, polarization independent operation, and high off-band suppression. It is tunable continuously over a wide spectral range. The device presents a most cost-effective solution for OEM applications from fiber optic networks to fiber sensing interrogation.

Motor Driven Grating-Based Fiber Optic Tunable Filter

Photonwares’s Motor Driven Grating-Based Fiber Optic Tunable Filter provides a simple way to adjust the center wavelength of narrow band over wide band. Wavelength tuning is actuated by driving a built-in precise stepper motor through interface of USB or RS232.

Long Range Manual Tunable Fiber Optical Filters – Etalon-Based

Based on a proprietary thin film cavity filter technology, we produce Fiber Optic Tunable Filters with central wavelengths of 1060nm to 2050nm having a long tuning range over 120nm. Other center wavelength can also be made.  This is achieved by combining two tunable filters and two wavelength independent optical switches. The wavelength tuning is made by manually rotating two precise micrometers; one at a time and selected by a push button toggle switch. Our unique low insertion loss design presents a cost-effective solution for long range fiber tunable filter.
