Paper Abstract

We present a concept for a circulator that has the same bandwidth efficiency as a photonic crystal circulator but which relies on a ring resonator and thereby is experimentally much easier to realize. We achieve this by side coupling three waveguides to the ring resonator. The desired standing wave pattern which recreates the photonic crystal type circulator spectrum is realized by exciting both the clockwise and counter-clockwise traveling wave through a Bragg reflector.
