Abstract

The authors report on nonconservative coupling in a passive silicon microring between its clockwise and counterclockwise resonance modes. The coupling coefficient is adjustable using a thermo-optic phase shifter. The resulting resonance of the supermodes due to nonconservative coupling is predicted in theory and demonstrated in experiments. This Letter paves the way for fundamental studies of on-chip lasers and quantum photonics, and their potential applications.
