Paper Abstract

We present a minimalist design but high functionality micro-ring resonator based optical filter with narrow linewidth and low group delay using a novel design we called LOBOUR for LOoped-Back Over- and Under- Coupled Resonator (LOBOUR). The characteristics of both narrow linewidth and low group delay (low chromatic dispersion) generally do not come together especially when using a single ring resonator. The Cascaded Over- and Under-Coupled Resonator (COUR) design was able to achieve this goal but introduced many practical fabrication issues. Here, we present an alternative design to COUR which uses only one ring resonator and without fabrication and manufacturing issues. It can achieve 50 dB extinction ratio and tens of ps performance. We also present important parameter selection mapping for LOBOUR.
