Paper Abstract

An add/drop filter based on coupled vertical gratings is presented on silicon. We analyze the device theoretically and experimentally and show that the concept is easily extended to multi-channel add/drop filters. We demonstrate tunability of the device bandwidth and operation wavelength. The free spectral range of the device exceeds the bandwidth used in wavelength division multiplexing systems, which makes it ideally suited for use in such systems.
