Abstract: Optical microdisk and microring resonators that are micrometer in size and support sharp optical resonances by total internal reflections have long been regarded as functional building blocks for on-chip optical communications. Recently, thanks to the requirement of high-speed optical interconnects on computer chips, they see major research efforts in such microresonators devices fabricated on silicon chips for optical interconnects applications. These microresonators coupled with integrated waveguides can potentially form photonic networks-on-chip that offer compact footprint and enable waveguiding and switching of high-data-rate optical signals.
In this talk, they will review our recent work on microresonator-based devices for optical interconnects on a silicon chip. Specifically, they will focus on: (i) optical matrix switch using low-loss low-crosstalk multimode-interference-based waveguide crossings coupled with microring resonators, and (ii) waveguide-coupled microdisk resonators using non-evanescent gapless coupling as high-order optical filter and potentially optical delay lines.
