A novel multiline filter using a two-dimensional guided-mode resonant (GMR) filter is proposed. The filter concept utilizes the multiple planes of diffraction produced by the two-dimensional grating. Multiple resonances are obtained by matching the guided modes in the different planes of diffraction to different wavelengths. It is shown that the location and the separation between resonances can be specifically controlled by modifying the periodicity of the grating and the other physical dimensions of the structure. This is in contrast to the one-dimensional GMR filters where the location of the resonances is material dependent. Two-line reflection filter designs with spectral linewidths less than 1 nm and a controllable spectral separation of up to 23% of the short resonance wavelength are presented using rectangular-grid grating GMR structures. Three-line filters are designed in hexagonal-grid grating GMR structures with two independently controllable resonance locations. (C) 2006 Optical Society of America.
