Abstract

We experimentally and theoretically studied the photon lifetime spectral distribution in two coherently coupled spherical microcavities of 316μm diameter forming a photonic molecule, which shows a multipeak narrowband modal structure resulting from lifting of the mode degeneracy with respect to the azimuthal quantum number. The results demonstrate the feasibility of photonic molecules as a basis for a multichannel, wavelength-tunable optical delay-line device, which can be used for delay times in the range 10psto1ns.
