Extract

We demonstrate the performance of a fiber Fabry-Perot (FFP) interferometer and show how the finesse of the interferometer can be adjusted by changing the operating wavelength. These sensors are extraordinarily sensitive and might have uses for high-density wavelength division multiplexing and high-resolution fiber sensor applications. We cannot resolve the transmission peaks using an optical spectrum analyzer and consequently use a tunable laser diode to study them.
