Coupled cavities and band-edge slow-light effects in periodic waveguides

Sukhorukov, Andrey; Ha, Sangwoo; Lavrinenko, Andrei; Kivshar, Yuri


We demonstrate, theoretically and experimentally, that the modes of coupled cavities created in periodic waveguides can depend critically on the lateral shift between the cavities. In the absence of such shift, the modes feature symmetric or antisymmetric profiles, and their frequency splitting generally increases as the cavities are brought closer. We show that the longitudinal shift enables flexible control over the fundamental modes, which frequency detuning can be reduced down to zero. Our...[Show more]
