Weakly coupled high-Q nanophotonic cavities are building blocks of slow-light waveguides and other nanophotonic devices. Their functionality critically depends on tuning as resonance frequencies should stay within the bandwidth of the device. Unavoidable disorder leads to random frequency shifts which cause localization of the light in single cavities. We present a new method to finely tune individual resonances of light in a system of coupled nanocavities. We use holographic laser-induced heating and address thermal crosstalk between nanocavities using a response matrix approach. As a main result we observe a simultaneous anticrossing of 3 nanophotonic resonances, which were initially split by disorder. (C) 2017 Optical Society of America


Understanding the plasmonic properties of dewetting formed Ag nanoparticles for large area solar cell applications
Gunendi, M. Can; TANYELİ, Irem; Akguc, Gursoy B.; Bek, Alpan; Turan, Raşit; Gulseren, Oguz (The Optical Society, 2013-07-29)
The effects of substrates with technological interest for solar cell industry are examined on the plasmonic properties of Ag nanoparticles fabricated by dewetting technique. Both surface matching (boundary element) and propagator (finite difference time domain) methods are used in numerical simulations to describe plasmonic properties and to interpret experimental data. The uncertainty on the locations of nanoparticles by the substrate in experiment is explained by the simulations of various Ag nanoparticle...

The structural stability and energetics of carbon, silicon, and germanium microclusters containing 3-7 atoms have been investigated by using a recently developed empirical many-body potential energy function (PEF), which comprises two- and three-body atomic interactions. The PEF satisfies both bulk cohesive energy per atom and bulk stability exactly. It has been found that the most stable C3-4 microclusters are linear with D-infinity-h symmetry but C5-7 microclusters are planar with D(nh) symmetry. Silic...
Structural features and energetics of Znn-mCdm (n=7,8) microclusters and Zn-50, Cd-50, and Zn25Cd25 nanoparticles: Molecular-dynamics simulations
Amirouche, L; Erkoç, Şakir (American Physical Society (APS), 2003-10-01)
The structural features and energetics of Znn−mCdm (n=7,8) microclusters and Zn50, Cd50, and Zn25Cd25 nanoparticles have been investigated by performing molecular-dynamics computer simulations using a recently developed empirical many-body potential-energy function. The most stable structures were found to be compact and three-dimensional for all elemental and mixed clusters. An interesting structural feature of the mixed clusters is that Zn and Cd atoms do not mix in mixed clusters; they come together almo...
High-Q Slot-Mode Photonic Crystal Nanobeam Cavity Biosensor With Optomechanically Enhanced Sensitivity
Erdil, Mertcan; Kocaman, Serdar (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2019-03-01)
A biosensor design based on a photonic crystal nanobeam cavity with an optomechanical positive feedback mechanism is proposed. Design of the cavity and optomechanical sensitivity enhancement method are numerically analyzed and the results show that fourfold improvement is possible without any degradation of the Q-factor.

Near-infrared Hong-Ou-Mandel quantum interference is observed in silicon nanophotonic directional couplers with raw visibilities on-chip at 90.5%. Spectrally-bright 1557-nm two-photon states are generated in a periodically-poled KTiOPO4 waveguide chip, serving as the entangled photon source and pumped with a self-injection locked laser, for the photon statistical measurements. Efficient four-port coupling in the communications C-band and in the high-index-contrast silicon photonics platform is demonstrated,...
