In this paper a 2D Photonic Crystal array in SOI platform having hexagonal periodicity with a ring defect incorporated along with two bus waveguides is conceptualized and realized for various applications of optical communication, sensing etc. The ring structure filters out a resonant wavelength from the spectrum carried to it through the line defect where the resonated peak is determined by the effective ring radius. The hexagonal architecture enables more coupling length than an ideal ring structure which helps in better intensity accumulation. The resonant peak exhibited at 1554nm in simulation, which is observed in the optical characterization at 1543nm. This is attributed to the fabrication tolerance.
