We present our recent work on silicon resonance and slow-light based devices for optical signal processing. Waveguide self-coupling and mutual coupling are used to tailor the waveguide spectral and dispersion characteristics. With selfcoupling, optical resonances are generated with unique transmission performances. Electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT)-like effect appears in cascaded self-coupled waveguides. With mutual coupling between ridge and slot waveguides, group velocity experiences a big jump and optical signal can be delayed for a large range with low distortion by using thermo-optic tuning.
