Paper Abstract

Double tap ring resonators fabricated by silver ion-exchange in glass yielded a finesse of 55 and an extraction efficiency of 55%. These numbers imply a propogation loss of 0.86 dB/cm and that as much as 10% of the energy in the input tap appears at the output tap after filtering through the ring resonator. We also measured the back scatter in the ring resonators and found it to be only 1% of the forward propogating intensity. This back scattered light can result in destabilization of the laser diode.
