Title (EN) RESONANT OPTICAL MODULATORS
(FR) MODULATEURS OPTIQUES DE RESONANCE
Abstract:
(EN) A resonant optical modulator comprises a transmission fiber-optic waveguide, a circumferential-mode optical resonator transverse-coupled thereto, a modulator optical component transverse-coupled to the circumferential-mode resonator, and a modulator control component. A control signal applied to the modulator optical component through the modulator control component alters the round-trip optical loss of the circumferential-mode resonator, thereby altering the transmission of a resonant optical signal through the transmission fiber-optic waveguide. The modulator optical element may comprise an open waveguide or a closed waveguide (i.e., resonator). The resonator round-trip optical loss may be altered by altering the optical absorption/scattering of the modulator optical component, or by altering an optical resonance frequency of a resonant modulator optical component.
(FR) L'invention concerne un modulateur optique de résonance comprenant un guide d'ondes à fibres optiques, un résonateur optique à mode circonférentiel couplé de manière transversale, un composant optique de modulation couplé de manière transversale au résonateur à mode circonférentiel, et un composant de commande de modulation. Un signal de commande appliqué au composant optique de modulation par l'intermédiaire du composant de commande de modulation modifie la perte optique aller-retour du résonateur à mode circonférentiel, modifiant ainsi la transmission d'un signal optique de résonance par l'intermédiaire d'un guide d'ondes à fibres optiques de transmission. L'élément optique de modulation peut comprendre un guide d'ondes ouvert ou un guide d'ondes fermé (c'est-à-dire un résonateur). La perte optique aller-retour du résonateur peut être modifiée par modification de l'absorption/diffusion du composant optique de modulation, par modification de la quantité de transfert de puissance optique entre le résonateur et le composant optique de modulation, ou par modification de la fréquence de résonance optique d'un composant optique de modulation.
