Abstract

We report on wide wavelength tuning through optical injection of carriers of a photonic resonance observed in reflectivity at 1543 nm in an InP-based two-dimensional photonic crystal slab. An 8-nm blueshift, which represents 20 times the resonance linewidth, is observed when a 4-kW/cm2 intense optical pump is incident on the sample. An analytical model that we developed, based on a coupled-mode nonlinear approach, allows us to describe this phenomenon in detail.

  12. One can justify this assumption by calculating, by use of the plane-wave expansion method, the wavelength shift of the photonic band as a result of a change of refractive index. For our structure this variation is linear in a wavelength range greater than 60 nm.
