Abstract

Techniques for controlling spectral width are used in conjunction with thin-film techniques in the design of guided-mode resonance (GMR) filters to provide simultaneous control over line-shape symmetry, sideband levels, and spectral width. Several factors that could limit the minimum spectral width are discussed. We used interference effects for passband shaping by stacking multiple GMR filters on top of one another. A design is presented for a 200-GHz telecommunications filter along with a tolerance analysis. Compared with a conventional thin-film filter, the GMR filter has fewer layers and looser thickness tolerances. Grating fabrication tolerances are also discussed.
