Abstract

The effects of a micrometer-scale silicon ring resonator with a FWHM of 0.078nm (9.6GHz) on a nonreturn to zero amplitude-modulated optical signal with a modulation rate of 10Gbps are experimentally investigated. By transmitting the optical signal through the device, significant spectral distortion and sideband attenuation is introduced, as characterized by amplitude Bode plots, and a power penalty of 0.8dB is observed. Carrier wavelengths within the transmission resonance, but detuned from the center wavelength, are investigated as well. Numerical simulations further support the experimental results.
