Silicon carbide (SiC) exhibits promising material properties for nonlinear integrated optics. We report on a SiC-on-insulator platform based on crystalline 4H-SiC and demonstrate high-confinement SiC microring resonators with sub-micron waveguide cross-sectional dimensions. The Q factor of SiC microring resonators in such a sub-micron waveguide dimension is improved by a factor of six after surface roughness reduction by applying a wet oxidation process. We achieve a high Q factor (73,000) for such devices and show engineerable dispersion from normal to anomalous dispersion by controlling the waveguide cross-sectional dimension, which paves the way toward nonlinear applications in SiC microring resonators.
