We investigate the optical signal processing capability of self-coupled optical waveguide (SCOW) resonators. Benefited from the double-notch resonance feature in transmission, a variety of optical pulse shaping functions can be implemented. A Gaussian input pulse can be transformed to a flat-top square-like pulse or in reverse. The separate and merged notches can perform first- and second-order differentiations to the input pulse. Odd-symmetry Hermite-Gaussian (OS-HG) waveforms are generated from the differentiation. Numerical simulation and preliminary experimental results are given.
