Modern optical communication system requires multiple channel transmission in different spectral band for different applications. Here we are proposing a microresonator structure for closely spaced, mode independent multiple channel transmission in 3rd transmission window by controlling the localization of photons in its cavity. To design the proposed structure, the spectral filtering properties of a single cavity planar microresonator are studied initially. In conventional multilayer dielectric filter, the localization of light in the microcavity is generally controlled by controlling the number of layers. Here we have shown that application of electric field across the structure, designed with suitable materials can also affect the localization of light in the cavity as well as the Q values of the transmission spectra. The mode independent characteristic of the structure is found from the study of its transmittance characteristics at different angle of incidence of light. It is found that the results of single cavity structure hold well for multicavity resonator structure also, in the regime of optical communication wavelength range. A method to increase the number of transmission channels is also proposed here keeping the fabrication perspective in mind. © 2017, Springer Science+Business Media New York.
