Abstract

An integrated photonic K-band microwave bandpass filter has been proposed and demonstrated by incorporating a polymeric ring resonator. Its transfer characteristics were adjusted by shilling the resonance wavelength of the ring resonator via the thermooptic effect. The achieved performance of the filter includes the center frequency of 20 GHz, the attenuation of ${\sim}15dB$, the bandwidth of 2 GHz, and the corresponding quality factor of 10. The microwave output power within the passband of the device was adjusted at the rate of about 6.7 dB/mW in the range of 27 dB. This kind of device with electrically controllable transfer characteristics can be applied to implement microwave switches and other devices.
