We discovered that a silicon-on-insulator photonic crystal waveguide whose lattice is shifted along the waveguide generates wideband, low-dispersion, slow light with excellent reproducibility. We observed delayed transmission of picosecond optical pulses, as well as two-photon absorption and self-phase modulation enhanced by a high internal light intensity in the slow-light regime.
