Abstract

This study presents a digital programmable light spectrum synthesis system based on the Digital Micromirror Device (DMD™) from Texas Instruments (TI). A DMD pattern scanning calibration method is developed and applied to the synthesis of various infrared C-band (1530-1565 nm) spectral profiles, including a fast programmable tunable light source, a square profile, a saw tooth waveform and a triangular spectrum profile The experimental results show that the wavelength resolution of the DMD spectrum synthesis system is approximately 0.076 nm/pixel. The proposed spectrum synthesis system has a number of key advantages, including a rapid and stable performance and multi-channel compatibility. The spectrum synthesis system is suitable for various applications, including a tunable light source, an equalizer for erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs), and a wavelength scanner.
