A Sum-Difference Microring Filter for Lossless Bandwidth Tuning (Th1A.29)
Presenter: Yang Ren, University of Alberta
We propose a general variable-bandwidth filter for lossless bandwidth tuning based on the sum-difference microring architecture. We demonstrate a 4th-order filter in SOI, achieving ~5 folds increase in bandwidth without extra insertion loss or degradation in filter shape.
