Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A coupling-modulated microring in an add-drop configuration for DPSK that uses the phase-flip in a 2x2 Mach-Zehnder interferometer coupler for the modulation is proposed. The concept is demonstrated in silicon-on-insulator at 10 Gb/s.
