Design and Fabrication of a Photonic Crystal Channel Drop Filter Based on an Asymmetric Silicon-on-Insulator Slab
Abstract:We report on the design and fabrication of a photonic crystal (PC) channel drop filter based on an asymmetric silicon-on-insulator (SOI) slab. The filter is composed of two symmetric stick-shape micro-cavities between two single-line-defect (W1) waveguides in a triangular lattice, and the phase matching condition for the filter to improve the drop efficiency is satisfied by modifying the positions and radii of the air holes around the micro-cavities. A sample is then fabricated by using electron beam lithography (EBL) and inductively coupled plasma (ICP) etching processes. The measured Q factor of the filter is about 1140, and the drop efficiency is estimated to be 73%±5% by fitting the transmission spectrum.
