Abstract

We demonstrate numerically the ability for directionally releasing the stored ultrashort light pulse from a microcavity by means of two-pulse nonlinear interaction in a cascading Bragg grating structure. The setting is built by a chirped grating segment which is linked through a uniform segment, including a tunable microcavity located at the junction between the two components. Our simulations show that stable trapping of an ultrashort light pulse can be achieved in the setting. The stored light pulse in a microcavity can be possibly released, by nonlinearly interacting with the lateral incident control pulse. Importantly, by breaking the symmetry of potential cavity, the stably trapped light pulse can be successfully released from the microcavity to the expected direction. Owing to the induced optical nonlinearity, the released ultrashort light pulses could preserve their shapes, propagating in a form of Bragg grating solitons through the uniform component, which is in contrast to the extensively studied light pulse trappings in photonic crystal cavities which operate at the linear regime.

Figures (7)

Fig. 1
Fig. 1 (a) A schematic of the system without a cavity. The setting is built by a linearly chirped Bragg grating segment (on the left-hand side), which is linked through a uniform grating segment (on the right-hand side of the setting). (b) A microcavity is introduced at the junction between the chirped and uniform Bragg grating segments. For clear illustration, the size of the cavity is magnified. (c) The setting’s effective potential which is proportional to −δc (z). The figure shows three different cases of potential curves: case 1, C1 = C2; case 2, C1 > C2; and case 3, C1 < C2.
Fig. 2
Fig. 2 Typical examples for pulse nonlinear interaction between the stored pulse and the control pulses in a symmetry microcavity (C1 = C2), with the cavity width fixed to zc = 50 μm. The stored light pulse can be released forward (a), or backward (b), or remain being trapped in the potential cavity (c), with the control pulse intensity setting as IC = 1.88 GW/cm2 (a), IC = 2.39 GW/cm2 (b), and IC = 2.72 GW/cm2 (c), respectively. In figures (a–c), the incident time of the control pulse is set as tc = 1.54 ns. (d–f) show similar results by tuning the injected time tC, with a fixed control pulse intensity IC = 2.14 GW/cm2: (d) tC = 0.5 ns; (e) tC = 0.9 ns; and (f) tC = 1.9 ns. The color bar units are GW/cm2.
Fig. 3
Fig. 3 (a) The relationship between function of status (FOS) and the control pulse intensity IC; while (b) shows the relationship between FOS and the incident time tC of the control pulse. Other parameters of the setting used here are kept the same as that shown in Fig. 2.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Typical examples for pulse forward releasing in an asymmetry microcavity, with Δδ = 3 cm−1 (C1 > C2). The cavity width remains unchanged. (a–c) The stored light pulse can be released forward from the cavity with different IC, and tC = 1.54 ns: (a) IC = 1.62 GW/cm2; (b) IC = 2.20 GW/cm2; and (c) IC = 2.72 GW/cm2. (d–f) Successful pulse forward releasing from the cavity can be also achieved with different cases of injected time tC and a fixed IC = 2.07 GW/cm2: (d) tC = 0.7 ns; (e) tC = 1.2 ns; and (f) tC = 2.1 ns. The color bar units are GW/cm2.
Fig. 5
Fig. 5 (a) The relationship between FOS and the control pulse intensity IC; while (b) shows the relationship between FOS and the incident time tC of the control pulse. Other related parameters about the setting are kept the same as that shown in Fig. 4.
Fig. 6
Fig. 6 (a) The propagating group velocity VG of the released pulse from cavity, as a function of the control pulse intensity IC; while (b) the propagating group velocity VG of the released pulse, as a function of tC. Here VG is a ratio of the speed c of light in vacuum. The parameters used here for simulations are kept the same with that shown in Fig. 4.
Fig. 7
Fig. 7 Examples for pulse backward releasing from an asymmetry microcavity, with Δδ = −2 cm−1 (C1 < C2), and ε = 0.06. The cavity width remains unchanged. (a, b) The stored light pulse can be released backward from the cavity with different IC, and tC = 1.54 ns: (a) IC = 1.23 GW/cm2; (b) IC = 2.26 GW/cm2. (d, e) Successful pulse backward releasing from the cavity can also be achieved with different cases of injected time tC and a fixed IC = 1.62 GW/cm2: (d) tC = 0.8 ns; and (e) tC = 1.2 ns. (c, f) The relationship between FOS and (c) IC, and (f) tC. The color bar units of figures (a, b, d and e) are GW/cm2.
