Measurement and mitigation of multiple reflection effects on the Differential Group Delay spectrum of optical components

Published

Author(s)

Paul A. Williams, Jonathan D. Kofler

Abstract

Ripple in the Differential Group Delay (DGD) spectrum due to multiple reflections is described theoretically and demonstrated experimentally. A technique of tilting the cavity element to reduce these multiple reflection effects is discussed and is demonstrated to remove the ripples in the DGD spectrum.
