Abstract

In this paper, we have investigated the influence of two-photon absorption (TPA) on the dynamic behaviors of all-pass and add-drop microring resonators by using two iterative methods along with the linear stability analysis method. While the incident field is above a certain value, the TPA coefficient has greater influence on the steady state for all-pass and add-drop microring resonators. We use the linear stability analysis method to analyze the stability of the steady state solutions and obtain stability conditions. Results obtained have shown that the change of TPA coefficient will lead to different dynamic behaviors; in addition, while the TPA coefficient is small and its change is slight, the dynamic behaviors of the microring resonators will not change much for most regions. At last, we observe the period windows and route from chaotic to period-N in some original chaotic regions due to the fluctuation of the TPA coefficient.
