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


We investigated ultra-compact optical buffers using cascaded ring resonators and photonic crystal waveguides on silicon-on-insulator platform. Group delay exceeding 500ps was realized at 20Gbps, corresponding to buffering of 10bits using up to 100 cascaded resonators.
