An efficient, tunable Long Period Waveguide Grating (LPWG) filter based on a new hybrid sol-gel material is demonstrated. The LPWG exhibits an attenuation of -22 dB and a high temperature sensitivity of ~3.3 nm/°C. At room temperature the device shows an almost polarization independent wavelength. We took the advantage of the UV-curable sol-gel materials and used soft lithography to demonstrate a simple approach of integrating two LPWG filters on the same structure. The gratings were fabricated on the top and on the bottom of the same ridge waveguide and operate at communication wavelengths of 1550 and 1310 nm, respectively.
