Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

A photonic integrated architecture realizing the concept of coupled-resonator dual-mode optical filters is presented. The proposed structure consists of a chain of directly coupled microring resonators with a partial reflector embedded in the last resonator. The contradirectional coupling induced by the reflector makes the effective order of the filter double with respect to the number of coupled resonators. Since the counterpropagating modes share the same physical cavity, the resonant frequencies are intrinsically aligned, sensitivity of the filter to fabrication tolerances is reduced, and control of the structure is eased with respect to coupled resonator filters of the same order. Second-and fourth-order dual-mode filters made of microring resonators loaded with a Bragg grating are experimentally demonstrated on a silicon-on-insulator photonic platform.
