Abstract

We present an integrated optical wavelength meter based on a Si3N4/SiO2 micro ring resonator (operating over a free spectral range of ≈ 2.6 nm) whose output response is immune to temperature changes. The wavelength meter readout is performed by a neural network and a non-linear optimization algorithm. This novel approach insures a high wavelength estimation precision (≈ 50 pm). We observe a long-term reproducibility of the wavelength meter response over a time interval of one week. We investigate the influence of the ambient temperature on the estimated wavelength. We observe an immunity of the displayed output wavelength to temperature changes of up to several degrees. The temperature-drift immunity appears to be caused by deviations from the theoretically expected (perfect) transmission function of a ring resonator, i.e., caused by deviations that are usually undesired in spectroscopic devices.
