1D and 2D arrays of coupled photonic crystal cavities with a site-controlled quantum wire light source

We investigated experimentally 1D and 2D arrays of coupled L3 photonic crystal cavities. The optical modes of the coupled cavity arrays are fed by a site-controlled quantum wire light source. By performing photoluminescence measurements and relying on near-field calculation of the cavitiy modes, we evidence optical coupling between the cavities as well as supermode delocalization. In particular, for small cavity separations, fabrication induced disorder effects are shown to be negligible compared to optical coupling between cavities. (C) 2013 Optical Society of America
