    Vertically coupled Si3N4/SiO2 passive microring resonators having different lateral distance from the straight forward waveguide have been investigated. The transmitted and dropped power of the devices was measured. Specifically, by means of input and output polarizers, the polarization conversion between TE and TM mode has been investigated. Main cavity parameters, i.e. finesse and free spectral range have been reconstructed from experimental data. Finally, the results on TE/TM polarization conversion is briefly explained.
