We proposed a device composed of a Bragg grating and a long-range surface plasmon polariton waveguide. The waveguide is formed by embedding a thin Au stripe in negative UV photoresist (SU-8 2005). The corrugated grating structure is created on a silica substrate using contact lithography and inductively coupled plasma etching, which is transferred onto the SU-8 2005 film by a spin coating process, producing a periodic modulation of refractive index along the waveguide. We achieve a transmission peak with an extinction ratio of 17 dB and a 3-dB bandwidth of 0.9 nm at a wavelength of 1575.2 nm. We achieve a reflection peak with a side-mode suppression ratio of 9.7 dB, a 3-dB bandwidth of 0.9 nm at a wavelength of 1575.2 nm when the heating electrode isn’t working. The shift of the reflection peak with heating power over the range 0–6 mW is approximately 2.9 nm. This thermal dependence exhibits an average slope of .
