All-optical switching of dark states in nonlinear coupled microring resonators

Scheuer, Jacob; Sukhorukov, Andrey; Kivshar, Yuri


We propose and analyze an on-chip all-optical dynamic tuning scheme for coupled nonlinear resonators employing a single control beam injected in parallel with a signal beam. We show that the nonlinear Kerr response can be used to dynamically switch the spectral properties between a "dark state" and electromagnetically induced transparency configurations. Such a scheme can be realized in integrated optical applications for pulse trapping and delaying.
