We experimentally demonstrate trapping and dropping of photons through localized cavity modes in three-dimensional layer-by-layer photonic crystal structures. By creating acceptor- and donor-like cavities which are coupled to a highly confined waveguide (HCW), we drop selected frequencies from the waveguide mode. Tunability of the demultiplexing structures can be achieved by changing the properties of cavities and the coupling between the cavity and the HCW.
