The single-mode microring resonators on lithium niobate thin films were designed and simulated using 2.5-D variational finite difference time domain mode simulations from Lumerical mode Solutions. The single-mode conditions and the propagation losses of lithium niobate planar waveguide with different SiO2 cladding layer thicknesses were studied and compared systematically. The optimization of design parameters such as radii of microrings and gap sizes between channel and ring waveguides were determined. The key issues affecting the resonator design such as free spectral range and Quality Factor were discussed. The microring resonators had radius R = 20 μm, and their transmission spectrum had been tuned using the electro-optical effect. View Full-Text
