Abstract


We present the fabrication and characterization of tunable photonic crystal cavities on double semiconductor layers using an electrostatic nano electro mechanical system (NEMS). We demonstrate large (>10nm) tuning of cavity modes on InP. We also report about a novel device design based on vertically coupled one-dimensional (1D) photonic crystal nanobeams on GaAs.
