Abstract

Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) techniques are commonly used in fiber optic telecommunications where the information transmitted down the fiber is carried on different channels at specific wavelengths. As the number of channels increase, and the wavelength separation between the channels decrease, it becomes more challenging to isolate one wavelength channel from another.
