Abstract
A 2×2 microring resonator array is investigated analytically and numerically in this paper. Based on the transfer matrix formalisms, its analytical model is developed for characterizing the transmission spectrum. When the coupling coefficients are in a medium range, there are two zero transmissions symmetrically locating between four unit peaks. The envelope of the transmission spectrum varies greatly as coupling coefficients change, which is called the mode evolution. It is found that mode evolutions are highly sensitive to the inter-resonator coupling coefficient when it is small and the waveguide-resonator coupling coefficient when it is large. Rigorous finite-difference time-domain simulations show agreement with the analytical model. Mode Evolutions are expected to be used for wavelength selectors and sensors.
