We show that both the coupled photonic crystal slab and the single photonic crystal slab structure can function as an optical all-pass transmission filter for normally incident light. The filter function is synthesized by designing the spectral properties of guided resonance in the slab. We expect this compact device to be useful for optical communication systems.
