Abstract

We design and fabricate a compact third-order coupled-resonator filter on the silicon-on-insulator platform with focused application for on-chip optical interconnects. The filter shows a large flat bandwidth (3dB 3.3nm), large FSR (~18nm), more than 18dB out-of-band rejection at the drop port and more than 12 dB extinction at the through port, as well as a negligible drop loss (<0.5dB) within a footprint of 0.0004 mm2.
