Abstract

This paper describes the design, modeling, fabrication and characterization of single-row photonic crystal multiple micro-cavity structures embedded in 500 nm photonic wire waveguides. The strength of coupling between the resonators and the free spectral range (FSR) between the split resonance frequencies of the coupled-cavity combination were controlled via the use of different numbers of periodic hole structures - and through the use of different aperiodic hole taper arrangements between the two cavities in the middle mirror section of the mirrors. Both 2D and 3D finitedifference time-domain (FDTD) computations have been used to simulate the device structures. Comparisons have been made with the results of measurements and show good agreement.
