Paper Abstract

We report on the observation of optically induced transparency (OIT) in a compact microresonator in an ambient environment by introducing a four-wave mixing gain to nonlinearly couple two separated resonances of the micro-cavity. Its optical-controlling capacity and non-reciprocity characteristics at the transparency windows are also demonstrated. Active-controlling of the OIT can be achieved by varying a strong pump beam, while a small frequency-detuning of the pump can lead to a Fano-like asymmetric resonance justifying the interference nature of OIT. Furthermore, OIT observed here is a non-reciprocal one, since FWM gain is a unidirectional one owing to the conservation law of momentum.
