Abstract
In optical and optomechatronics applications including hybrid and integrated cases, there are some inherent phenomena such as dispersion, loss and many others that must be critically removed for performance improvement. Among the others, one of the most quantities is dispersion. Dispersion is important in most optical applications such as optical communications including all accessories and optical sensors. Optical pulse broadening and chirping are main disadvantages of dispersion effect. Dispersion cancellation in these applications is crucial. Dispersion compensators are widely spread with many methods for realization of that. In this paper a novel dispersion compensator and management system based on thermo optical effect is introduced. Thermo optical effect and the index of refraction changes due to temperature in ring resonator are used to manipulate dispersion quantity. Thermal source is generated in this case with application of electrical potential on metallic layer coated on ring resonator. Introduced idea is realized using ring resonators and results are presented.
