    First, the demand for high‐speed active microring resonators in next generation optical networks will be explained, followed by a brief description of our preliminary results on rare earth doped nanoparticle dispersed polymers. Based on these results we propose some possible all‐optical switching schemes that we will investigate using microring resonators that are made of this type of optically non‐linear material.
