A Literature Review on Microring Resonators

Ali Shahidinejad


Microring resonators are a rapidly-developing area of research in photonic devices, and have a wide range of applications including signal processing filters, sensors, lasers, modulators, switches, memory and slow-light elements, and the list of applications and the performance achievements is growing. Recently microring resonators have become an interesting technology to generate enhanced pulse shapes and accurate wavelengths

This review presents a review on generating wavelengths and pulses shapes using microring resonators systems. Although the commercial promise of microring resonators has not yet been realized, this paper continues to flourish in a remarkable variety of applications-areas discussed here.
