Paper Abstract

A simple theory is presented for the analysis of optical channel-dropping filters for dense WDM applications. It combines the orthogonal coupled-mode theory based on normal modes and the nonorthogonal coupled-mode theory based on isolated waveguide modes. Analytical solution is obtained for the power dropped in the resonant channel. The interplay between mutual coupling and direct Bragg reflection is discussed.
