Abstract

We discuss several interesting applications of ultrahigh-Q and ultrasmall nanocavities recently realized in silicon photonic-crystal slabs: 1) All-dielectric slow-light media, 2) All-optical bistable switching elements towards all-optical logic chips, 3) Adiabatic wavelength conversion, 4) Super-efficient optomechanical energy converter.
