Abstract

We propose and experimentally demonstrate a feasible integrated scheme to solve all-optical differential equations using microring resonators (MRRs) that is capable of solving first- and second-order linear ordinary differential equations with different constant coefficients. Employing two cascaded MRRs with different radii, an excellent agreement between the numerical simulation and the experimental results is obtained. Due to the inherent merits of silicon-based devices for all-optical computing, such as low power consumption, small size, and high speed, this finding may motivate the development of integrated optical signal processors and further extend optical computing technologies.
