Photonic Crystal Narrow Band Filters Using Biperiodic Structures
M. Djavid, A. Ghaffari, F. Monifi and M.S. Abrishamian

Abstract:
In this study, we propose a new type of photonic crystal band-pass and band-stop filter based on biperiodic structure. Usually two types of photonic crystal band-pass filters are utilized in optical circuit. In the first one Fabry-Perot cavities are used while in the second one cavity-coupled waveguide are used. We optimize the second structure in this study. Then we show that by little changing in the band-pass structure, a band-stop filter is attained. Using Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) method we achieve output efficiency over 98% for band-pass filter and below 3% for band-stop filter. Also we investigate filter tunability parameters which affecting central frequency of these filters. Further analysis shows that the central frequency of transmission band (stop band) can be changed by altering the refractive index of bigger rods in biperiodic structure.
