The coupling of optical waveguides to ring resonators holds the promise of a new generation of switches (modulators) which employ orders of magnitude smaller switching (modulation) voltages (or control intensities). This requires a means for voltage (or intensity) control of the coupling between the waveguide and the resonator. Schemes for achieving such control are discussed.
