Abstract

We propose subdiffractive all-photonic crystal Fabry–Perot resonators and study light propagation in this novel system. The photonic crystal in the cavity is tuned to the subdiffractive regime and the mirrors to the center of the photonic bandgap. We show that such all-photonic crystal resonators exhibit a broadband angular transmission at a fixed frequency and a high Q factor, resulting in a drastic reduction of the power threshold for all-optical switching.
