Abstract

Membrane-based photonic crystal GaAs cavities with a double-heterostructure design were investigated. They show the highest quality factors for GaAs photonic crystal cavities to date, exhibiting quality factors higher than 10 5 . The resonances of these cavities were fine-tuned in steps smaller than 2 nm by digital etching.
