Abstract:

Frequency-agile Fabry-Perot etalons have been built using the electro-optic actin of nematic and ferro-electric liquid crystals to tune the pass wavelength. Also, techniques exist for constructing liquid crystall elements in 1-D and 2-D arrays. The combination of these technologies would yield spatially addressable, tunable spectral filter elements useful for wavelength-domain optical signal processing. These devices would be compact, rugged, and require very low drive power. However, present commercial and research etalons exhibit unacceptably low finesse (F
