초록

본 논문에서는 폴리머 링 광공진기를 이용하여 집적광학형 K-band용 마이크로웨이브 대역통과 필터를 제안하고 구현하였다. 특히, 열광학 효과를 이용하여 광공진기의 공진파장을 변화시킴으로써 대역통과 필터의 전달특성을 전기적으로 조절하였다. 측정된 필터의 중심주파수는 20 GHz, 소멸비는 약 15 dB, 3 dB 대역폭은 2 GHz, 그리고 Q값은 10이었다. 마이크로웨이브 필터에서 중심주파수의 출력특성을 27 dB범위 내에서 ${\sim}6.7dB/mW$로 조절할 수 있었다. 전기적으로 조절되는 전달특성을 갖는 이 필터는 마이크로웨이브스위치 등으로 응용할 수 있을 것으로 기대된다.
