Abstract

This Letter introduces an enhanced cavity-waveguide coupling architecture based upon slow-light engineering in a two-port photonic crystal system. After analyzing the system transmittance using coupled-mode theory, the system is probed experimentally and shown to have increased transmittance due to the enhanced cavity-waveguide coupling. Such a coupling architecture may facilitate next-generation planar lightwave circuitry such as onchip quantum information processing or high precision light-matter sensing applications.
