Abstract

We present analysis and design of microring resonators integrated with reflective elements to obtain custom wavelength-selective devices. We introduce a graphical method that transforms the complicated design problem of the integrated structure into a simple task of designing a reflective element possessing an appropriate reflection profile. Configurations for obtaining a comb mirror, a single peak mirror, an ultranarrow band transmission filter, and a sharp transition mirror are presented as examples.
