Paper Abstract

This paper addresses on the theoretical analysis of a novel active ring microresonator filter, which is designed on Er-Yb co-doped phosphate glass. The filter characteristics of the proposed filter is analyzed by transfer matrix method, some universal relations for coupling of optical power between microresonator and dielectric waveguides and pump power are presented. The analytical expressions of filter bandwidth, free spectral range, and finesse are derived. Numerical results demonstrate that the change of pump power does not alter the resonance performance of ring micro-resonator filter, the improvement of which will have important effect on output characteristics of filter: reducing the filter bandwidth and increasing the finesse of the resonator filter.
