A silicon micro-ring device with tunable four-wave mixing efficiency is presented. The micro-ring is monolithically integrated with a dual polarisation filter based on a cascaded three ring resonator geometry. Four-wave mixing is demonstrated with signal and idler transmitted through the filter with only 1.8 dB of insertion loss. The pump light is rejected with over 62 dB extinction for both TE and TM guided modes.
