Abstract

We demonstrate a silicon carbide (SiC) microdisk resonator with an intrinsic optical quality factor of 6.19×103, fabricated on the 3C-SiC-on-Si platform. We characterize the temperature dependence of the cavity resonance and obtain a thermo-optic coefficient of 2.92×105/K for 3C-SiC. Our simulations show that the device exhibits great potential for cavity optomechanical applications.
