DWDM Filters

Application

Dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) filters multiplex and de-multiplex wavelength signals in high speed optical networks. The DWDM filters are evenly spaced on an ITU grid ranging from 1525 to 1640 nm. Iridian supplies a number of standard and custom DWDM bandpass and edge filters.

Single band filters are used to transmit a single DWDM channel and reflect other DWDM channels. Edge pass filters are used for wavelength band separation or optical add-drop multiplexing (OADM) is required.
Multi-channel separation filters DWDM 2skip0, 4skip0, 6skip0, and 8skip filters are also available.

Iridian’s edge pass filters have a very sharp transition between reflect and pass bands while still maintaining very low insertion loss and low passband ripple.

Iridian can custom design and manufacture these filters to your specifications if the standard spec is not desirable for your applications.
