In an earlier post I discussed how laser light is brought into waveguides on a chip. Now let’s look at some of the reasons we want to have light guided on chips in the first place. One device that shows the advantage of integrated optics is the ring resonator. It is a very compact device which allows precise discrimination of wavelengths.
