Abstract
A generation algorithm is used to optimize a tunable optical wavelength selection switch (WSS) which is based on a cascaded silicon microring resonator. This method can help us find the optimal inter-ring coupling coefficients which can lead to smaller ripple and better wavelength selectivity over a predefined pass band range. In this paper, we validate this method by a real design and report the results of several, such GA-based WSS optimization. The results show that the GA method performs well even under the limit of physical properties of a silicon ring resonator.
