Abstract

We present an analytical study on the effects of coupler-induced localized backscattering (CILB) on the nature of superluminal and subliminal propagations in a traveling wave microresonator (TWMR). It is found that in the weak CILB regime, the flexibility to control the light propagation velocity is improved, and fast and slow light with high output power can be generated for a TWMR with a small net optical gain.
