Abstract

Microring weight banks enable reconfiguration in analog photonic networks and multi-channel RF front-ends. We demonstrate 2-ring weight banks and show that they are tolerant to fabrication and thermal effects. Weights consisting of two microrings can potentially increase channel capacity by a factor of 2.72-fold.
