Optical Filters and Etalons for Datacom Applications

Demand for data center storage and data transfer capacity has increased dramatically over the past decade, exponentially increasing the load placed on backplane-to-backplane data server interconnects within each center. In response to ever-increasing bandwidth demand and evolving data center architectures, the copper connections traditionally used to connect backplane to TOR switches and TOR to leaf … Continue reading

Etalons Explained

Manx Precision Optics (MPO) produces coated optics, uncoated optics and polarization optics products. Etalons comprise one of the categories of uncoated optics. Etalons are optical components based on the principle of the Fabry-Perot Interferometer. They are effective narrow band filters, transmitting only light of specific, periodic frequencies with tight bandwidths. They are commonly used in … Continue reading
