Paper Abstract

Coupled-resonator-induced transparency (CRIT) effect has been widely studied in parallelly coupled double microring resonators (MRRs), and various applications based on the CRIT effect have been demonstrated. We report the proposal and demonstration of a directed logic circuit with the functions of XOR and XNOR using CRIT. Two electrical signals applied to two coupled MRRs represent two operands of the logic operations, and the operation results are represented by the output optical signal. As proof-of-concept, the thermo-optic modulation scheme is employed with an operating speed of 10 kbps.
