Multilayer, multimode waveguides are utilized in resonant grating filters having a broadened angular acceptance bandwidth for multiple wavelengths at a single oblique angle of incidence. It is shown that the waveguide grating structure should support a few leaky modes in order to support a multiwavelength resonant filter at oblique incidence with broadened angle acceptance at each wavelength.
