August 26, 2004 Atlanta, GA -- Micron Optics Inc. recently released its new generation of Fabry-Perot tunable filters (FFP-TF2). According to the company, the new design provides improved etalon alignment for stable long-term, high reliability, and Telcordia-qualified performance at a more attractive price.

Several standard low-cost configurations (below $1,000 in volume) are readily available for quick delivery. Custom high performance multi-band configurations are also available for special uses, including sensing, biotech, and scientific applications. Options available include full-band tuning from 1260 nm to 1620 nm along with the largest finesse range in the industry (from finesse 10 to 16,000). While the new line is not a direct replacement for the original FFP-TF style--due to drive voltage and packaging differences--the new filters are now more suitable in many cost sensitive applications.Th 156291
