Abstract

Using coupled-mode theory we examine the linear and Kerr nonlinear behavior of multiple consecutive photonic-crystal switches. Two types of resonators are considered, those with the cavity inside and those adjacent to the waveguide. We observe gap solitons in both structures and examine a nonlinear mode with energy localized near the boundaries of the finite system. Finally, we propose a device with two side-coupled resonators and a judiciously chosen intercavity distance that demonstrates switching at low powers. In addition to coupled-mode theory, rigorous simulations are performed for this structure.
