Paper Abstract

Optical add/drop filters using two-dimensional photonic crystals (PC’s) are presented for different designs. In-plane channel add/drop filter composed of two waveguides and an optical resonator system is very compact, but sensitive to the losses. While add/drop filter based on a contra-directional PC waveguide coupler is much more robust to the losses, and reasonable compactness is possible with careful designs. The possibility to utilize the PC dispersion properties to design optical filters is also discussed briefly.
