Abstract

The position-dependent mode couplings between a semiconductor nanowire (NW) and a planar photonic crystal (PPC) nanocavity are studied. By scanning an NW across a PPC nanocavity along the hexagonal lattice’s Γ – M and M – K directions, the variations of resonant wavelengths, quality factors, and mode volumes in both fundamental and second-order resonant modes are calculated, implying optimal configurations for strong mode-NW couplings and light-NW interactions. For the fundamental (second-order) resonant mode, scanning an NW along the M – K (Γ – M) direction is preferred, which supports stronger light-NW interactions with larger NW-position tolerances and higher quality factors simultaneously. The simulation results are confirmed experimentally with good agreements.
