The general expression of dispersion relation of microring coupled-resonator optical waveguides was obtained using transfer matrix method. Based on the dispersion relation the linear characteristics of optical pulse propagation in microring coupled-resonator optical waveguides was discussed with respect to the bandwidth, group velocity, dispersion and linear phase shift. These characteristics are important for applications of coupled-resonator optical waveguides in optical communications or as optical sensors.
