Abstract

We have repeatedly and reproducibly switched a GaAs-AlAs planar microcavity operating in the “original” telecom band by exploiting the virtually instantaneous electronic Kerr effect. We achieve repetition times as fast as 300 fs, thereby breaking the terahertz modulation barrier. The rate of the switching in our experiments is only determined by optics and not by material-related relaxation. Our results offer opportunities for fundamental studies of cavity quantum electrodynamics and optical information processing in the subpicosecond time scale.

(a) Schematic of the setup. The probe beam path is shown in blue, the trigger beam path with multiple pulses in red. Signal reflected from the cavity is spectrally resolved and detected with a spectrometer. Inset: scanning electron micrograph of the microcavity with the λ-thick defect layer (arrows) sandwiched between two Bragg stacks. (b) Measured (black circles) and calculated (transverse matrix model red curve) reflectivity spectra of the microcavity. The stopband of the Bragg stacks extends from 7072cm1 to 8498cm1. A narrow trough at ω0=7804cm1 (λ0=1281.4nm) indicates the cavity resonance, also shown in the inset with a high resolution.

Cavity resonance frequency and refractive index change versus time delay Δt. (a) One trigger pulse is applied. (b) Two trigger pulses separated by δttr=1.0ps, (c) δttr=700fs, and (d) δttr=300fs. The horizontal dashed lines denote the unswitched resonance frequency. The solid curves represent the calculated resonance frequency and the dotted lines the refractive index change in the dynamic model. Blue-filled regions indicate the overlap of the first trigger pulse with the probe pulse and the yellow regions indicate the second trigger pulse.

Cavity resonance frequency and refractive index change versus time delay Δt. The cavity resonance frequency is switched with two trigger pulses separated by δttr=1.0ps and two probe pulses separated by (a) δtpr=3.0ps and (b) δtpr=2.0ps. Horizontal dashed lines are the unswitched resonance. Solid curves are the calculated resonance frequency and the dotted lines show the refractive index change in the dynamic model. Blue-filled regions indicate the overlap of the first trigger pulse with probe pulses and yellow regions indicate the overlap of the second trigger pulse with the probe pulses.
