A two-dimensional photonic crystal (PhC) super-prism integrated with one-dimensional photonic crystal microcavity filters has been designed using the plane wave expansion (PWE) and 2-D Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) methods based on Silicon-on-Insulator (SOI) technology. The super-prism operates as a coarse spatial filter with an average response bandwidth of 60 nm, while the 1-D PhC microcavity filters operate as narrow band-pass transmission filters with an average filter response line-width of 10 nm. This work demonstrates the simultaneous operation of two photonic devices for de-multiplexing applications on a single platform that could be useful in future Photonic Crystal Integrated Circuits (PCICs).
