Importance of Intrinsic-Q in Microring-Based Optical Filters and Dispersion-Compensation Devices


We investigate the impact of the intrinsic-Q of the resonant poles on the performance of multiring-based optical filters and dispersion-compensating devices. We highlight the role of quality factor by defining figures-of-merit for some specific filter configurations.
