Abstract

A wavelength-selective reflector, composed of a double-ring-resonator add/drop filter and a loop-back mirror at the drop port to be used for a hybrid-integrated tunable laser is designed and fabricated. High-index-contrast polymer waveguide is used to realize a compact device as small as <TEX>$2mm{\times}0.4mm$</TEX>. The radii of the rings are slightly different from each other to obtain a wide wavelength tuning via a vernier effect. Peak reflectivity is measured to be 52% for TE mode and polarization-dependent wavelength shift is 0.95 nm. The tuning range is measured to be about 42 nm for applied current as small as 46 mA.
