In this paper, a 4-N,N-dimethylamino-4′-N′-methyl-stilbazolium tosylate (DAST) material assisted one-dimensional photonic-crystal-based (1D-PhC) tunable optical filter is presented. The design comprises a bilayer 1D-PhC structure having DAST as an electro-optic material. The device parameters are configured to filter out the 632.8 nm wavelength from the reflection spectrum. The analysis shows that by illuminating the device with poly-chromatic light at an incident angle of 45.07°, the filtered wavelength exhibits transmission maxima having FWHM of less than 1nm. The analytical results also demonstrate the post fabrication 60 nm electrical tuning of the filtered wavelength by using only ±5 V applied potential. The structure also exhibits a very stable filter response up to 40% variations in optical thickness. Thus, the proposed design possesses the advantage in terms of low voltage wavelength tuning, stable response, easy fabrication and integration capability in integrated circuits.
