Abstract

We propose a technique for realization of a high-contrast, tunable, low-insertion-loss notch filter using polarization selectivity of whispering-gallery-mode resonators. We demonstrate a 10 MHz filter with 5.5 dB insertion loss and 45.5 dB of in-band rejection. The measured rejection value is limited by the finite ( 3 kHz ) linewidth of our laser. We show that the filter can potentially have tunable bandwidth without significant rejection modification.
