Wavelength-selective operation of an optical filter (add/drop) based on a contra-directional photonic crystal waveguide coupler is demonstrated. The waveguides are defined as line defects in a two-dimensional triangular photonic crystal fabricated in an InP/GaInAsP heterostructure. The device is characterized using the end-fire method for the drop functionality. The experimental data are in good agreement with the theoretical results predicted by finite-difference time-domain simulations. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
