Abstract
The proposed project will undertake the research, design, and development of key concepts and technologies for high-speed electronically tunable channel filter, based on super compact grating technology that has been developed in OptoNet. This project is proposed by a strong multidisciplinary team of industry and academic researchers, including device design and packaging experts from OptoNet Inc. and device physics and fabrication experts from the Northwestern University. In Phase I of this project, the emphasis will be on the development of a proof-of-concept for the proposed fast tuning speed, wide tuning range fiber optic compatible wavelength filter. The proposed SCG based Tunable Filter has the following advantages: (1) Ultrafast tuning speed of <10nsec. (2) High signal extinction of >40dB. (3) Lossless or amplified throughput by integrated SOAs. (4) Compact size with a chip area <10mm2. (5) High ruggedness based on monolithic integration. (6). High manufacturability due to monolithic integration. (7) High functionalities with functions as channel equalizer or multi-channel amplifier. (8) Signal bypass of un-dropped signal channels. (9) Multiple-Channel Dropping. (10) Wide tuning range of >32nm. (11) Accurate channel reference.
