Abstract

A robust optical insertion loss measuring approach based on a symmetrically coupled add-drop microring resonator is demonstrated on silicon-on-insulator platform. Utilizing resonant wavelengths and relative values of measured optical power, this approach frees the insertion loss measurement from the uncertainties caused by experimental set-up, including system alignment and wavelength dependence of the couplers. Strip-slot mode converters were fabricated and measured to present the exemplary insertion loss measurement process. A series of experimental results confirm that the insertion loss of the low-loss silicon photonic devices can be accurately and reliably obtained even the adopted couplers are wavelength-dependent, and the fibers are deviated 15 μm from the horizontal direction and 110 μm from the vertical direction, exhibiting excellent robustness to the experimental set-up.

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 Schematic of the proposed IL measurement system. As an example, the input/output couplers are implemented with grating structures, and four pairs of strip-slot mode converters are embedded as DUTs. The optical microscope image shows the fabricated resonator with the embedded mode converters.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 (a) The measured optical powers (dBm), T at Port 2 and D at Port 3. The envelopes of measured T and D can behave as the transmission of the back-to-back GCs at Port 2 and Port 3. (b) Linear regression of resonant wavelengths to extract ngL around λ0 = 1549.66 nm. (c) The measured optical powers (mW) near λ0 = 1549.66 nm in (a). Here, Tmax is the average of the maxium values on both sides of λ0. (d) Transformed linear relationship around λ0 = 1549.66 nm.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) The measured IL of the DUTs on three different chips at their own resonant wavelengths. The measured D (b), T (c) and IL (d) when misalignment is performed at Port 1. The measured IL when misalignment is performed at Port 2 (e) and Port 3 (f).
