(a) Resonance linewidth in the best devices is as narrow as 38 MHz, corresponding to loaded Q L = 5 × 10 6 . The laser is modulated by a precise frequency source at 500 MHz for calibration. Inset: Transmission spectrum in logarithmic scale indicating that the resonator is nearly critically coupled. (b) Ring-down measurement of the same device. (c) Measured quality factors for different resonators on several chips. (d) Extracted propagation loss for racetrack resonators. All the measurements are conducted around 1590 nm.
