Plane wave expansion (PWE) simulation is employed in the present paper to design the photonic-based monochromatic filters in the near-infrared region with the help of silicon waveguide structure which acts as background material and waveguide deals with the silicon-based grating structure. Here, the width of two semiconductor materials SiO and Si are decisive factor for the selection of allowed signal of filters in the above-said range. Simulations are carried out for three best suitable regions; 800–900, 1300–1400 and 1500–1600 nm to study the reflectance characteristics of the filter. This paper also reveals that the width of the SiO and Si is varied linearly with the allowed signal in the above-said range.
