We demonstrate experimentally the finesse enhancement in a pair of mutually coupled ring resonators coupled to two buses fabricated in silicon-on-insulator technology, as proposed theoretically in an earlier paper. A finesse close to 100 or Q=30 000 is obtained in a two-ring system, with the outer ring double the size of the inner ring, and an external coupling coefficient of 34%. The maximum finesse enhancement relative to the single-ring structure is 14 times, in good agreement with the theoretical prediction.
