Abstract

An optimized all-fiber edge filter is developed, based on a one-turn macrobending bare fiber structure. The discrimination range is 16.32 dB over a wavelength range from 1500 to 1600 nm, which can be employed for wavelength measurement applications. It offers a simpler structure compared to the previously developed macrobending fiber loss edge filters, without an increase in the polarization-dependent loss.
