Paper Abstract

The temporal coupled mode theory is applied on the design of filters and waveguide crossings that feature a resonator with a high quality factor. To determine the transmission properties of the device we calculate the decay rate of the resonator. The analysis using the decay rates requires far less computational effort than conventional FDTD transmission calculations and therefore the optimum device properties can be determined quickly.
