      Alipour, Payam; Hosseini, Ehsan Shah; Eftekhar, Ali Asghar; Momeni, Babak; Adibi, Ali (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-10)
      We have used a urethane polymer as cladding to reduce the temperature sensitivity of resonance in high-Q silicon microdisk resonators. A two-order-of-magnitude improvement in resonance stability is demonstrated, and ...

      Alipour, Payam; Eftekhar, Ali Asghar; Atabaki, Amir Hossein; Li, Qing; Yegnanarayanan, Siva; Madsen, Christi K.; Adibi, Ali (Georgia Institute of TechnologyOptical Society of America, 2011-08)
      We present a fully reconfigurable fourth-order RF photonic filter on SOI platform with a tunable 3-dB bandwidth of 0.9–5 GHz, more than 38 dB optical out-of-band rejection, FSR up to 650 GHz, and compact size (total area ...
    • A Temperature-Insensitive Third-Order Coupled-Resonator Filter for On-Chip Terabit/s Optical Interconnects 

      Li, Qing; Yegnanarayanan, Siva; Soltani, Mohammad; Alipour, Payam; Adibi, Ali (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
      We design and demonstrate a temperature-insensitive third-order coupled-resonator filter in the silicon-on-insulator platform for on-chip terabit/s optical interconnects. Optimum filter design enables up to 21 flat-band ...
