Optical router for optical fiber sensor networks based on a liquid crystal cell
Optical fiber sensor networks are evolving rapidly. They are used because of the inert nature of optical fibers allowing no electromagnetic interference and safe applications in inflammable atmospheres; other relevant ...
Microwave interferometric technique for characterizing few mode fibers
We propose and experimentally demonstrate a simple and accurate technique for measuring differential mode group delay (DMGD) in few mode fibers (FMF). A frequency-swept microwave signal is modulated on a filtered optical ...
Lead-germanate glasses and fibers: A practical alternative to tellurite for nonlinear fiber applications
We report on the fabrication of novel lead-germanate glasses and fibers. We have characterized these glasses in terms of their thermal properties, Raman spectra and refractive indices (both linear and nonlinear) and present ...
Novel tunable optical filter employing a fiber loop mirror for synthesis applications in WDM
A novel optical filter employing a fiber loop mirror within an amplified ring resonator is presented. The fiber loop mirror allows tuning by changing the coupling factor of a coupler. The device can be used as a building ...
Study of the glass transition temperature of as-s glasses for the fabrication of chalcogenide optical fibers
Values of glass transition temperature (Tg) and of linear expansion coefficient (α) for Asx S100-x glasses were measured in the range of concentrations 35 × 42. Because of the importance of the glass formation region 35 × 42 ...

Measurements on passive tunable optical filters for DWDM
Measurements on a passive optical fibre tunable filter are presented. The device is based on a loop mirror in a ring resonator. The loop mirror allows tuning by changing the coupling coefficient of a coupler. The novel ...
