High-Finesse Periodic Coupler as a Wavelength Selective Device for WDM
In the out-going worldwide effort towards increasing the capacity of optical fibers, one is encountering practical problems with time division multiplexing at data rates above 10 Gb/s. Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) is now widely believed to have the potential for increasing bandwidth 10- to 100-fold. In a WDM system, a comb of optical carriers, of different wavelengths and individually modulated, is multiplexed onto a single optical fiber.
