Recent progress on various components consisting of PBG waveguides and resonators in SOI photonic-crystal slabs are reviewed. We have demonstrated slow-light modes in PBG waveguides, and significantly high-Q in ultrasmall PBG resonators. By combining waveguides and resonators, we have realized several multi-port devices, such as resonant-tunneling filters and channel-drop filters.
