We report tunable two-stage self-coupled optical waveguide (SCOW) resonators composed of a pair of mirror-imaged single SCOW resonators connected by a phase shifter in between. Experimental results show that the coupled-resonator-induced-transparency and high-order bandstop filtering characteristics can be obtained in the transmission spectra of the devices with two different configurations. The resonance spectrum can be tuned by using either a p-i-p microheater or a p-i-n diode in the phase shifter. Our theoretical modeling based on the transfer matrix method has a good agreement with the experimental results.
