We propose and demonstrate generation, transmission and reception of optical single side-band modulated optical carrier using a silicon photonic based self-coupled micro ring resonator. The resonator works on degenerate mode inter-resonance splitting where the split can be dynamically tuned to suppress side-band of double side-band modulated optical carrier over broad range of frequency. We demonstrate a suppression ratio of 42 dB with received RF power non-uniformity of ±3 dB between 1 and 13 GHz range.
