Optical guided mode resonance filter on a flexible substrate
MetadataShow full item record
We demonstrate the operation of a flexible optical filter based on guided mode resonances that operates in the visible regime. The filter is fabricated on a free standing polymeric membrane of 1.3 μm thickness and we show how the geometrical design parameters of the filter determine its optical properties, and how various types of filter can be made with this scheme. To highlight the versatility and robustness of the approach, we mount a filter onto a collimated fibre output and demonstrate successful wavelength filtering.
