Ultrasharp ministop-band edge for subnanometer tuning resolution
We propose and demonstrate a method that enables spectral tuning with subnanometer accuracy, and is based on the transmission ministop-band (MSB) in line-defect multimode photonic crystal (PhC) waveguides. The fabricated MSB filter has ultrasharp edges which show a 30 dB drop in transmission in a 4 nm wavelength span. The use of the ultrasharp MSB edge to (optically) determine PhC fabrication accuracy is demonstrated. The wavelength position of the MSB could be tuned by temperature, with a...[Show more]
