Abstract:

A method for manufacturing an optical RF bandpass filter comprises the steps of 1 mounting an optical fiber having first and second ends in a fiber support structure having first and second surfaces so that the first end is exposed at the first surface and the second end is exposed at the second surface 2 forming a first layered mirror structure on a first substrate to create a first mirror wafer structure having a first reflective surface 3 forming a second layered mirror structure on a second substrate to create a second mirror wafer structure having a second reflective surface 4 affixing the first reflective surface of the first mirror wafer structure to the first surface of the fiber support structure and 5 affixing the second reflective surface of the second mirror wafer structure to the second surface of the fiber support structure.
