Abstract.  Parallel-coupled dual racetrack silicon microresonator structures are fabricated and characterized. With an integrated Mach–Zehnder interferometer, the full information of amplitude and phase of the structure is obtained experimentally. The spectral characteristics of the amplitude and phase are shown to be in reasonable agreement with simulation results, considering possible small structure variations in fabrication. The structure is potentially useful for developing modulators for advanced modulation formats.
