Abstract

The design of active semiconductor microdisk switches, modulators,or wavelength routers enabled by modulating the transfer characteristics of a resonant cavity is investigated. A simple theoretical model based on coupled-mode theory is used to elucidate design trends and constraints in the cases where electroabsorption, gain, and free carrier injection are employed to modulate the resonator characteristic.
