Paper Abstract

This paper a simple semi-analytical model for calculation of the time evolution and spatial variation of the electric field in microring resonators in the presence of The Kerr effect and two-photon absorption (TPA) is presented. The theoretical analysis is based on the delayed feedback model, which is well known in microring theory. The model is applied to the Chalcogenide glass and AlGaAs microrings to study the Kerr and TPA effects on the spatial and temporal variation of electric field respectively across the microring. The effects of microring parameters and input signal shapes on the transient behavior are taken into consideration. It is shown that, the results are in good agreement with the full numerical method.
