Abstract

The recent, a large capacity of telecommunication networks is required in order to it is in proportion to capacity of information communication increase and to satisfy a demand because of the demand about Internet, a multimedia service of internet, Video of internet protocol(VoIP), Audio/Video streaming. As a result, DWDM(Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing)technologies are emerging to be a prevailing the method of solving it without additional optical fiber network building and high-speed equipment. Therefore this thesis proposed the optical filter of fiber/multilayer slab coupled structure combining it to multilayer slab waveguide by polishing the cladding of one side of fiber to design the optical filter having these functions. When a separation distance of fiber and slab was $3{\mu}m$, The optical filter proposed as the simulation result was satisfied with a DWDM filter characteristic with FWHM of 0.1nm on TM mode and TE mode as 32nm polarization independence in a communication window of $1.3{\mu}m$ when center wavelength was each ${\lambda}_0=1.274755{\mu}m$ and ${\lambda}_0=1.30591{\mu}m$.
