Abstract

Membrane-based photonic crystal GaAs cavities with a double-heterostructure design were investigated. They show the highest quality factors for GaAs photonic crystal cavities to date, exhibiting quality factors higher than 105. The resonances of these cavities were fine-tuned in steps smaller than 2nm by digital etching.
