Photonic crystal channel drop filter with a wavelength-selective reflection micro-cavity.

Abstract

In the paper, a novel three-port channel drop filter in two dimensional photonic crystals (2D PCs) with a wavelength-selective reflection micro-cavity is proposed. In the structure, two micro-cavities are used. One is used for a resonant tunneling-based channel drop filter. The other is used to realize wavelength-selective reflection feedback in the bus wave-guide, which consists of a point defect micro-cavity side-coupled to a line defect waveguide based on photonic crystals. Using coupled mode theory in time, the conditions to achieve 100% drop efficiency are derived thoroughly. The simulation results by using the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method imply that the design is feasible.
