Abstract

Optical wavelength conversion over an ultrawide spectral range based on an intermodal transition induced by dynamic tuning of a double heterostructure photonic crystal cavity is numerically demonstrated. Exploiting the inherently large spectral separation between the eigenmodes and the field symmetries to suppress multiple mode couplings, a normalized wavelength shift of about 25% with feasible index tuning is achievable by coupling only two resonances.

Schematic of the heterostructure cavity; holes along the line defect (striped circles) are enlarged from the bulk PhC (open circles) to the mirror sections (hatched). The membrane index in the boxed region is tuned dynamically.

Dispersion bands of the TE-like modes within the first bandgap for the (solid red curve) standard line defect and the (dashed blue curve) one with enlarged holes along the defect. Arrows label the modes of the cavity in Fig. 1.

Magnetic-field cross section at membrane symmetry plane for the standard line defect modes at the band edge, labeled as in Fig. 2.

Magnetic-field profile of the (a) A and (b) C modes of the unperturbed cavity, labeled as in Fig. 2.

Fig. 5
Fig. 5

Wavelength spectra of the optical field inside the cavity obtained by 2D FDTD; solid blue, dashed green, and dotted red curves correspond to nonuniform (upper half), uniform (entire cavity), and without index perturbations, respectively. Index is linearly lowered by 0.9% within the normalized interval of Δ T Δ f = 0.67 . Inset shows the interband conversion efficiency for various total index changes. Tuning interval is normalized by the inverse of the frequency difference between the two mixing modes.
