Abstract

A new design for a single-photon tunneling device based on tunneling of light through a gap in a photonic crystal linear waveguide containing a deep defect state is suggested. Unlike recently observed single-photon tunneling through nanometer scale nonlinear pinholes in a thick gold film, in the device described here the photon current should be strictly conserved. By appropriate design of the barrier width, defect level position in the bandgap, and defect spatial position in the barrier, a desired photon tunneling rate can readily be engineered.
