Abstract

We design high-quality-factor photonic crystal nanobeam cavities formed by two mechanically isolated cantilevers. These “split-beam” cavities have a physical gap at the center, allowing mechanical excitations of one or both of the cavity halves. They are designed by analyzing the optical band structures and mode profiles of waveguides perforated by elliptical holes and rectangular gaps and are predicted to support optical resonances with quality factors exceeding 106 at wavelengths of 1.6μm.
