Abstract

We present quality factors of single-defect photonic-crystal resonant cavities with asymmetric cladding layers. The resonators studied here are dielectric slabs patterned with two-dimensional photonic crystals on a sapphire substrate. Three-dimensional finite-element and finite-difference time-domain routines were used to analyze the electromagnetic properties of these cavities. We observe that high quality factors (∼800) can be obtained in these cavities for reasonable structures with thick enough dielectric slabs. This work was motivated by the need to place photonic-crystal resonators on a substrate to improve heat dissipation in photonic-crystal lasers.
