Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We have recently achieved ultra-high-Q cavities in Si photonic-crystal slabs, and applied photonic-crystal nanocavities for all-optical nonlinear control. This system leads to alloptical digital-processing chips and novel ways of dynamic controlling light, such as adiabatic wavelength conversion.
