We report recent progress in the design and fabrication of coupled optical micro-resonators and their applications in realizing compact OEIC devices for optical spectral engineering. By leveraging synthesis techniques for analog and digital electrical circuits, advanced coupled-microring device architectures can be realized with the complexity and functionality approaching that of state-of-the-art microwave filters. In addition, the traveling wave nature of microring resonators can be exploited to realize novel devices not possible with standing wave resonators. Applications of coupledmicro- resonator devices in realizing complex optical transfer functions for amplitude, phase and group delay engineering will be presented. Progress in the practical implementation of these devices in the Silicon-on-Insulator OEIC platform will be highlighted along with the challenges and potential for constructing very high order optical filters using coupledmicroring architectures.
