Abstract

We present an all optically tunable wavelength-selective reflector for planar lightwave technology based on coupled microring resonators. By employing the Vernier effect, we demonstrate narrow-band reflection and strong side-lobe suppression in an optical polymer device fabricated by soft lithography. Wide and simple tuning of the reflection peak using an external control beam is demonstrated.
