## Abstract

This paper introduces the modeling approach of a new micro-ring resonator configuration composite of six asymmetrical rings with one input and five output bus waveguides. This multilayer sextuple-coupled micro-ring resonator (MSCMRR) is modelled in the $z$ domain by practicing the delay line signal approach and Mason’s gain formula. Both lateral coupling and vertical coupling are used to design this MSCMRR structure to confine it up to four layers. Performance analysis is carried out in a MATLAB platform with the graphical representation of performance parameters like free spectral range (FSR), group delay, dispersion, full width at half-maximum, etc. The optical couplers of the proposed model are also designed by the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. Electric field propagation through the rings and the waveguides are also studied by FDTD. The proposed structure offers different values of high FSR with zero crosstalk at every output port that ensures the quality application of this proposed model as an optical add-drop filter in an optical communication network.
