Paper Abstract

We present a novel optical guided-wave resonator configuration which is based on a single ring and three directional couplers. It has a free spectral range double that of a conventional double-coupler ring resonator (DCRR) with same curvature radius. Moreover, it features higher transmission at resonance and better extinction ratio than a DCRR with same values of waveguide propagation loss and finesse. Transmission characteristics and optimum design parameters are presented. A close comparison with an equivalent DCRR is carried out in terms of transmission at resonance and extinction ratio.
