Paper Abstract

Optoelectronic oscillators are classically based on a feedback fiber loop acting as a delay line for high spectral purity. One of the problems due to long fiber loops is the size and the requirement of temperature control. Going toward integrated solutions requires the introduction of optical resonators with a very high quality factor. A structure based on silicon on insulator material has been designed for application to an oscillator working at 8 GHz. The micro-resonator has a stadium shape with a ridge of 30 nm height, 1 μm width, a millimetric radius and a gap of some microns in agreement with the required free spectral range. A quality factor of 500000 can be achieved leading to an equivalent fiber loop of 2 km.
