Tunable narrowband filter based on a combination of Fabry-Perot etalon and volume Bragg grating.


A new type of tunable narrowband filter is proposed. This filter is a combination of a Fabry-Perot etalon, which permits the selection of a comb of discrete narrow bands, and a high-efficiency rotating volume Bragg grating recorded in photo-thermo-refractive glass, which permits tuning between the Fabry-Perot resonances. A tunable filter for fixed… (More)
