Wideband WDM

DiCon's Wideband WDM is designed to multiplex or demultiplex signals in multi-wavelength systems. The component uses a thin film filter mounted between a pair of GRIN lens collimators. DiCon's Wideband WDM is housed in a compact, environmentally stable package that offers superior resistance to humidity and temperature and is suitable for mounting on a printed circuit board or within a module. DiCon stocks a wide selection of filters with passbands.


  • High isolation over a broad wavelength range

  • Low insertion loss

  • High isolation

  • Rugged, environmentally stable package

  • Tested to Telcordia GR-1209 and GR-1221


Wideband WDMs are used to transmit groups of WDM laser channels in DWDM and CWDM transmission systems. Wideband WDMs help to make WDM transmission systems modular, so that additional channel groups can be added to the network over time without service disruption.
