Abstract

We report planar waveguide-coupled octagonal microdisk channel add–drop filters on silicon nitride-on-silica substrates. Using ray optics, we show that discrete octagonal cavities have wave-front-matched four- and eight-bounce ray orbits. From a planar waveguide-coupled 50-μm-sized octagonal microdisk filter, our experiment demonstrates TM-polarized eight-bounce modes with a coupling efficiency of ~56%, Q ≈ 1150, and a finesse of ~5. Using the two-dimensional finite-difference time-domain method, we obtain qualitative agreement between measurement and simulation of a smaller-sized waveguide-coupled octagonal microdisk filter.
