Abstract

We analyze side-coupled standing-wave cavity structures consisting of Fabry–Perot and photonic crystal resonators coupled to two waveguides. We show that optical bright and dark states, analogous to those observed in coherent light–matter interactions, can exist in these systems. These structures may be useful for variable, switchable delay lines.
