Abstract
The large refractive index difference between silicon nitride and silicon dioxide allows silicon nitride/dioxide waveguides to have a small mode size and low radiation bending loss. Low radiation bending loss enables high quality (Q) factor microring resonators. In this paper, we will present a record high quality factor microring resonator using silicon nitride and silicon dioxide on a silicon wafer. The microring resonator was fabricated using a deep UV photolithography and etching process. The microring resonator was critically coupled to a straight waveguide. An intrinsic quality factor of 240,000 has been measured. We will also present our result of using on-chip high-Q microring resonators for liquid phase chemical sensing application.
