Abstract

The temporal-coupled-mode theory is directly applied to the design of devices that feature a resonator with a high quality factor. For the temporal-coupled-mode theory we calculate the decay rate of the resonator to determine the transmission properties of the device. The analysis using the decay rates requires little computational effort, and therefore the optimum device properties can be determined quickly. Two examples, a wavelength filter and a resonator crossing, are presented to illustrate the use of the analysis.
