GaN as a nanophotonic material has gained much attention in recent years. Using the hybrid GaN/Si platform, we report the electro-optic tuning of guided-mode resonance in a vertically coupled hybrid GaN/Si microring resonator operating in the 1.5 μm window with up to a 6 dB extinction ratio and a 1.5 MHz modulation frequency (test equipment limit). The electro-optic tuning could be optically suppressed by electron-hole-originated screening induced by an ultraviolet excitation at 325 nm. Our work may benefit in externally intervenable optical interconnects for uninterrupted secure photonic networks.
