In a word - NO.

I worked with Fiber optics comms at a phone company - SONET gear.

You would need something with a "diffraction grating" cut for the specific wavelength. (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diffraction_grating)

Radio manual complete (finally) and sent to Vendor for review. How long that might take is an open question. What made this one a bit more challenging is it covers a series rather than a single radio set. I'll post the work over in the Comms section once the vendor accepts the work. Oh, and I'm stil...
