Abstract

We demonstrate record performance of series-coupled silicon racetrack resonators exhibiting the Vernier effect. Our device has an interstitial peak suppression (IPS) of 25.5 dB, which is 14.5 dB larger than previously reported results. We also demonstrate the relationship between the inter-ring gap distance and the IPS as well as the 3 dB bandwidth (BW) both theoretically and experimentally. Namely, we show that as the inter-ring gap distance increases, the IPS increases and the 3 dB BW decreases.
