Abstract

We have investigated the localized design of heterostructure photonic crystal nanocavities in order to make them more suitable for integration. While retaining theoretical quality factors of more than ten million, the total length of the heterostructure nanocavity can be reduced to ~5 μm and the shifted air holes comprising the heterostructure can be restricted to the two rows nearest the nanocavity on each side. Though the area for the heterostructure nanocavity investigated thus far was larger than 10 × 10 μm2 in the photonic crystal slab, heterostructure nanocavities of this new design have sizes of approximately 3 × 5 μm2, thus allowing dense integration.

(a) Schematic picture of the nanocavity with a two-step heterostructure. There are three PC regions with different lattice constants in the x-direction. L is the total length of the nanocavity. The superimposed color image represents the electric field distribution Ey for the high-Q nanocavity mode. The field intensity scale is shown by the color bar. (b) Band diagram for the line defect along the x-direction. Three energy regions are indicated: the transmission region, the mode-gap region, and the PBG region. The dashed curve represents the high-Q nanocavity mode.

Sketch of the sample structure and outline of the time-domain measurement using pulsed light. Five nanocavities with different lengths were fabricated parallel to an excitation waveguide. Pulsed light was produced by an electro-optical modulator and focused on the facet of the excitation waveguide via a tapered fiber. The sample was placed in an isolation chamber to stabilize the temperature. The photons radiated from the nanocavities to free space were transmitted to a time correlation counting system.

(a) Time-resolved signal for input pulsed light with pulse width of 4 ns. The step near 7 ns is due to the afterpulsing effect. [(b)−(d)] Signals for nanocavities NC10, NC2, and NC1, respectively. The photon lifetime (τ) for NC1 is considerably smaller than that for the other two.

Near-field images for nanocavities NC3, NC2, and NC1. [(a)−(c)] Experimentally measured images. [(d) −(f)] Calculated images. On decreasing the length of the nanocavity, the radiation at the cavity edges becomes dominant.

Fig. 5

Schematic picture of a nanocavity with a localized heterostructure (NC4-W7). Regions PC0, PC1, PC2, and PC2’ have different lattice constants in the x-direction. The value of a 1 is smaller than that of a 0 in order to compensate for lattice mismatch at the boundary of PC0 with the heterostructure. The superimposed color image represents the calculated Ey .
