Paper Abstract

A passive high finesse fiber ring resonator has been demonstrated using ultra low loss directional couplers. The finesse of the resonator was measured as high as 500. Resonator loss were dominated by the fiber attenuation rather than insertion loss of a directional coupler as previously reported elsewhere in recent literature. Further improvement of resonator finesse is feasible and applications of the this device are also discussed. Polarization effects in the resonator have been observed which indicate polarization dependent phenomena are occurring in the directional coupler.
