Abstract

We demonstrate 4-channel weighted addition in a silicon microring filter bank with 3.8 bit accuracy. Scalable calibration techniques are developed for thermal cross-talk and cross-gain saturation. Practical weight control is essential for large-scale photonic processing based on microrings.
