Paper Abstract

An iterative method is applied to the analysis of N-coupled ring resonators. Splitting of the modes into N higher-Q modes occurs when the round-trip phase shifts in each ring are equal, in agreement with results for planar resonators and whispering gallery modes (WGMs) in coupled microparticles. This mode-splitting is, therefore, a universal phenomenon for resonant structures, and can lead to reduced thresholds for nonlinear optical effects.
