Abstract

Circuits of dielectric integrated optical microring resonators are addressed through a two-dimensional hybrid analytical/numerical coupled mode theory (HCMT) model. Analytical modes of all straight and curved cores form templates for the optical fields of the entire circuits. Our variational technique then generates solutions for the amplitude functions in their natural Cartesian and polar coordinates, discretized by one-dimensional finite elements. Bidirectional wave propagation through all channels and pronounced reflections can be taken into account. The series of examples includes rings coupled in parallel, rows of cavities (coupled resonator optical waveguides) of varying lengths, a triangular photonic molecule, and a resonator with a slit ring to illustrate the role of intra-cavity reflections.

One might observe that this interpolation process is quite analogous to the usual analytical evaluation of parametric CMT models , where one takes into account first or second order wavelength derivatives of effective mode indices and neglects the wavelength dependence of coupling coefficients.

The fields ψf, ψb, ψc that constitute template satisfy formally the same equations, but each with different permittivity functions that represent the upper core, the lower core, or the cavity only, always on a homogeneous background.

One might observe that this interpolation process is quite analogous to the usual analytical evaluation of parametric CMT models , where one takes into account first or second order wavelength derivatives of effective mode indices and neglects the wavelength dependence of coupling coefficients.
