Abstract

Using iterative methods we demonstrate that, for a structure consisting of N-coupled microspheres or ring resonators, the morphology-dependent resonances split into N higher-Q modes, in direct analogy with other types of oscillators. Moreover, for odd numbers of identical lossless coupled rings, the circulating intensity in the innermost ring increases exponentially with N when there is strong coupling to even-numbered rings and weak coupling to odd-numbered rings.
