ABSTRACT Direct time-domain measurement of tunable optical delay in a silicon resonating structure is presented. The structure is composed by a double-ring resonator, whose spectrum has a narrow transparency peak with low group velocity analogous to that in electromagnetically induced transparency. Effective group indices from 90 to 290 are obtained by tuning the resonator thermally. The measurements agree well with the theoretical analysis.

    ABSTRACT: Silicon photonics leverages the optical, electrical and material properties of silicon and the mature complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) nanofabrication technique to develop on-chip photonic integration, which has been making significant impacts in various frontiers including next-generation optical communications networks, on-chip optical interconnects for high-speed energy-efficient computing and biosensing. Among many optical structures fabricated on silicon chips, microresonators due to their high-Q resonances and small footprints play important roles in various devices including lasers, filters, modulators, switches, routers, delays, detectors and sensors. This paper reviews from a microresonator perspective some of the latest progress in the field, summarizes design considerations in various applications and points out key challenges and potentials.

    ABSTRACT: We report an experimental study on the synthesis of metal nanoparticles (NPs) with adjustable optical density based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR). Metal NPs prepared by laser ablation in liquid method and the effect of laser parameters on the size, distribution, wavelength of SPR of Ag, Au, and mixture of Ag-Au, and Ag core/Au shell NPs are investigated. Our results show that the adjustable SPR band can be achieved in each class of NPs which is suitable for adjustable optical window applications.
