Waveguide-coupled drop filters on SOI using quarter-wave shifted sidewalled grating resonators.

We report on the design, fabrication, and demonstration of waveguide coupled channel drop filters at 1550 nm, on a silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrate. These devices rely on resonant power transfer from a bus waveguide to side-walled Bragg resonators with quarter-wave shifts in the middle. By employing a second mirror resonator, and a tap-off waveguide… CONTINUE READING
