Abstract

We show experimentally the existence of defect modes in mutually coupled microring resonator arrays fabricated in silicon-on-insulator technology. The movements of donor-like and acceptor-like modes are demonstrated for various defect lengths, in good agreement with earlier theoretical prediction.
