Channel dropping waveguide filters based on single and multiple resonators in silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology are of great interest due to their compactness and high wavelength selectivity, which is a desirable feature for photonic modulators, detectors, and other optically integrated components in telecommunication systems, in particular for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) systems. Particular advantage of these filters is that they are capable of producing relatively large free spectral range (FSR) as well as narrow 3-dB bandwidth of the filter resonances. Herein we report experimental results and discuss the possibility of designing mono-mode and (nearly) polarization independent SOI ring and racetrack resonators with the FSR in excess of 30 nm.
