With the knowledge of the optical principles used for passive components, we can now easily understand how passive components are built to perform the functions required by optical communications. In this chapter we will discuss some basic components that are usually used to form more complex passive components. In this chapter we will discuss:
fixed and tunable filters;

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
