Microring resonators have three key attributes which make them desirable for Very Large Scale Integrated Photonic Circuits (VLSI-PCs). First, they provide numerous wavelength selective functions including channel dropping filters such as true ON/OFF routing switches and notch filters. Second, the responses of the foregoing devices ca always be improved by using multiple rings in coupled cavity arrangements. Third, with reported devices having radii of from 5 μm to 25 μm, device integration densities of 104 to 105 devices/cm2 can be envisioned.
