We report on the design and fabrication of TE and TM polarization selective Bragg grating filters in the form of sinusoidal perturbations on the waveguide sidewall and etched holes on the top of the waveguide, respectively. Combining the two geometries on a silicon-on-insulator waveguide resulted in Bragg grating filters with high extinction ratios of approximately 60 dB.
