Ultra compact photonic crystal filters with and without metallic parts operating at telecommunication wavelengths are designed using the multiple multipole program combined with the model-based parameter estimation technique. Material loss is taken into account and measured material properties are employed for practical design considerations. Stochastic and deterministic optimization techniques are applied to obtain optimum filter characteristics.
