We propose a design strategy for wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) filters in BCB embedded photonic crystal membranes. Due to the weaker vertical confinement determined by the material embedding the whole structure, accurate tailoring of the resonant cavity and of both bus and drop waveguides is necessary, in order to guarantee the required performance of the filter for WDM applications.
