Abstract

Measured results from a microwave photonic traversal filter exploiting fiber Bragg grating (FBG) arrays and achieving a high-performance tunable bandpass microwave response are presented. Tuning is affected by changing the optical carrier wavelength to select the operating gratings, and the high-quality frequency response is obtained by weighting the reflections of the gratings. This experiment demonstrates that sophisticated passive signal processing functionality can be achieved practically using FBGs.
