Author Affiliations +
This submission describes the operational principles of silicon-based Micro Ring resonators (MRRs) for use in optical communication using OOK, particularly with regard to WDM. The importance of accurate device modeling is emphasized. Experimental results are provided for Si MRRs fabricated to provide high extinction ratio and low-insertion loss suitable for operation at a 10Gbps transfer rate.
