We describe silicon microring-resonator-based microphotonic circuits that support complete (amplitude and phase) disabling of resonant states, enabling novel capabilities: truly- hitless switching/tuning of high-order, telecom-grade channel add-drop filters, dispersionless FSR multiplication, and “hot-swapping” of photonic subsystems.
