Abstract

We demonstrate enhanced absorption in a photonic crystal resonator (PCR) coupled with an optical microfiber. Enhanced absorption is based on coherent perfect absorption (CPA) that is time-reversed lasing. The PCR is fabricated on a silicon membrane with optimized parameters obtained from a numerical simulation. In an experiment, we observed 72% of absorption for the PCR with the optimized parameters. We also verified numerically that the absorption required for CPA can be tuned by changing the distance between the PCR and the optical microfiber.
