    Abstract

    We demonstrate adiabatic wavelength shifting by electro-optic modulation, using a p-i-n integrated high-Q photonic crystal nanocavity. The wavelength of the trapped light is adiabatically shifted by modulating the resonance of the cavity faster than the photon lifetime. The cavity resonance is changed by injecting electrons through a p-i-n junction to reduce the refractive index. In addition, we employ adiabatic wavelength shifting in a demonstration of dynamic Q tuning by electro-optic modulation.
