Filter characteristics of metallo-dielectric photonic crystal slabs are analyzed using the Multiple Multipole Program combined with the Model-Based Parameter Estimation technique. This approach takes losses and material dispersion into account and provides highly accurate results at short computation time. Starting from this analysis, different ultra-compact band pass filters for telecommunication wavelengths are designed. The filters consist of five silver wires embedded in a waveguide structure. By applying stochastic and deterministic techniques the filter structures are optimized to obtain the desired characteristics.
