Paper Abstract

Morphology dependent resonances of dielectric microspheres are used for polarization insensitive optical channel dropping from an optical fiber half coupler to a silicon photodetector in the M-band. The dropped channels are observed in the elastic scattering and the transmission spectra. The highest quality factor morphology dependent resonances have a repetitive channel separation of 0.14 nm and a linewidth of 0.06 nm. The filter drops approximately 10% (0.5 dB) of the power at the resonance wavelength. The power detected by the photodiode is estimated to be approximately 3.5% of the power in the fiber.
