abstract

A summary is presented of some of the issues facing the developers of tunable filters for use in optical communication systems, including those exploiting acousto- optic, thermo-optic and electro-optic effects. The potential of electromechanically tuned variants is also assessed in relation to devices micromachined from silicon. Emphasis is given to electro-optically tuned devices, with experimental data presented for an example based on a nanophase polymer dispersed liquid crystal composite.
