Abstract

We propose and demonstrate reconfigurable microfiber-coupled photonic crystal (PhC) lasers. In this generic configuration, the position of a PhC resonator can be defined (and redefined) repeatedly by simply relocating a curved microfiber along the linear PhC waveguide. In the proximity of the PhC waveguide in contact with the microfiber, the cutoff frequency (effective index) of the PhC waveguide becomes smaller (larger) than that of a bare PhC waveguide. Accordingly, when a curved microfiber is in contact with the PhC waveguide, a linear PhC resonator having Gaussian-shaped potential well is formed. Experimentally we confirm the formation of the reconfigurable resonator by observing laser operation slightly below three available band edges.

Measured spectra for three different lattice constants of (a) 512 nm, (b) 460 nm and (c) 418 nm. The red curves show the spectra when the microfiber is in complete contact with PhC waveguide. The black spectral curves are taken when the microfiber is placed ~100 nm above PhC the waveguide. Blue dashed line indicates the band edge of the PhC waveguide mode. Inset of (b) shows the expanded interference pattern. The inset of (c) is the spectrum at low pump power of 2.5 mW.
