Abstract

The design, fabrication, and characterization of a one-dimensional photonic crystal optical filter that has a relatively narrow, flat-topped passband within a wide stop band and small angular sensitivity is presented. The filter is based on a one-dimensional photonic crystal structure that has multiple defects, facilitating simultaneous minimization of the angular sensitivity and optimization of the passband's characteristics. We use epitaxially grown and selectively oxidized GaAs/Al_xO_y multilayers to achieve a high-index-contrast material system and incorporate the experimentally determined optical and material properties into the design of the device. A flat-topped bandpass filter with a bandwidth of 65 nm and a wide field of view of 50° is experimentally characterized and compared with the design predictions.
