Abstract

we experimentally investigate the effects of slow light modes within a one dimensional photonic crystal resonator. We show that the slow light mode leads to significant increase in the quality factor of the resonator. We provide a theoretical analysis explaining our experimental results. We also include the effect of disorder to simulate the fabrication imperfection. Further results regarding the properties of the one dimensional photonic crystal are discussed.
