ABSTRACT We report a tunable all-fiber bandpass filter based on a short hollow optical fiber serially concatenated between a pair of long-period fiber gratings. With novel core mode blocking in the hollow core fiber and its optimal design, the device showed a low insertion loss of 1.5 dB and broad-band passband tuning range of 84.3 nm covering both S- and C-band.

    ABSTRACT: To imprint a long-period grating (LPG) in a photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with an optimum response, first the parameters of the PCF should be optimized. In this paper, by using a semi-analytical enhanced improved vectorial effective index method, the optimized PCF parameters are determined by dividing the single-mode operation of the PCF into two regions in terms of air-hole spacing Λ (Λ>3 μm and Λ≤3 μm). For each region appropriate expressions are suggested to evaluate the PCF parameters. By calculating the effective refractive index difference between the optimized core and cladding of the PCF under a phase-matching condition, the optimum grating period in terms of the PCF parameters is obtained.

    ABSTRACT: An acoustically tunable bandpass filter has been presented by applying flexural acoustic wave modulation in the single-mode-fiber-microstructured-optical-fiber (SMF-MOF) hybrid structure with splicing offset between the MOF and lead-out SMF. Simultaneous acousto-optic mode coupling the SMF as well as MOF is simultaneously excited in these two types of optical fibers and owing to the presence of fiber offset at the output splicing joint, part of the cladding mode light in the MOF could be collected by the lead-out SMF to achieve bandpass filtering operation. Furthermore, the transmission spectral interference with acoustically controlled operation wavelength and fringe visibility has been investigated as well. © 2015 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    ABSTRACT: We investigated a fiber-based multimode interference phenomenon in the wavelength domain by using a white light source and an optical spectrum analyzer. This phenomenon was produced by a larger-core optical fiber joined at both ends with smaller-core optical fibers. We examined the variation of interference wavelength with changes in the length of the larger-core fiber. The interference wavelengths were blue-shifted and the interference signals were sharpened with an increase in the length of the larger-core fiber. The calculated results agreed well with the measured results. Next, we investigated how the input and output fibers with a small core influence the interference signal characteristics. By comparing the amplitude differences of the interference signal we find the conditions of input and output (I/O) fibers for higher sensitivity. In addition, an interference-signal shift was observed by changing the medium surrounding an multimode interference (MMI) structure. The amount of shift increased at a longer wavelength. This leads to the sensitive detection of the refractive index. Finally, a demonstration of the optical fiber refractometer with a multimode interference structure was given by refractive-index measurements of ethanol/water solutions.
