Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We have fabricated an Add-Drop filter using an Erbium-Ytterbium co-doped microsphere resonator side-coupled to two tapered fibers. By optically pumping this active resonator below its lasing threshold, we have demonstrated bandwidth reduction, drop-efficiency increase and crosstalk suppression.
