We have systematically studied Bragg Grating Filters in Si photonic-wire waveguides. Highly uniform samples have been fabricated in a specialized foundry service for Si photonics. The reflected wavelength has been controlled over an 180 nm range. By changing the design parameters we controlled the photonic band-gap to be between 6 to 16 nm. Thermal tuning of the reflected wavelength was also measured, resulting in a wavelength shift of more than 3 nm.
