Abstract
The translational symmetry of the periodicity in a photonic crystal can be disturbed by introducing a controlled defect in its periodicity. The photon localization causes a pass band in the photonic bandgap. Based on this concept, we are proposing the design of a tunable narrow band filter for multiple wavelengths used for coarse wave length division multiplexing (CWDM) system. To achieve that, a multiple stack Fabry Perot structure with suitable stack materials and controllable defect is considered. The proposed Fabry Perot structure consists of periodic layers of electro optic material Lithium Niobate (nH) and Magnesium Fluoride (nL). The optical length of each such layer is their corresponding quarter wave length width at the design wavelength λ0 (1.55 μm). The reflection band of the quarter wavelength multilayer structure is formed due to the periodic repetition of the (LH)NL, where L and H are the quarter wavelength width of the nL and nH material respectively and N is the number of bilayers. A quarter wave layer L is then inserted between the groups of (LH)N and (HL)N to form the Fabry Perot resonator structure which can be used for narrow band transmission filter. The simulation has been carried out in both FDTD and TMM method and compared. As the refractive index of the Lithium Niobate can be tuned electro-optically, the filter can also be made tunable.
