Transmission resonant filters in a waveguide with vertical gratings have been realized in silicon on insulator wafers. Experimental studies of fabricated devices show a broad stopband of 19 nm in the center of which exists a narrow transmission band of 0.5 nm with a quality factor of 3000 . These resonant cavities are useful for laser cavities, switches, modulators, detectors, and tunable filters.
