Abstract

Waveguide Bragg grating filters with narrow bandwidths and high optical rejections are key functions for several advanced silicon photonics circuits. Here, we propose and demonstrate a new, to the best of our knowledge, Bragg grating geometry that provides a narrowband and high rejection response. It combines the advantages of subwavelength and modal engineering. As a proof-of-concept demonstration, we implement the proposed Bragg filters in 220-nm-thick Si technology with a single etch step. We experimentally show flexible control of the filter selectivity, with measured null-to-null bandwidths below 2 nm, and strength of 60 dB rejection with a null-to-null bandwidth of 1.8 nm.
