Abstract
A new micro-cavity design is proposed and structures are realized using a 2D photonic-crystal slab. The cavity consists of seven defect holes that encompass a hexagon and is designed to reduce vertical light leakage. From a direct transmission measurement, a Q-value of 816+/- 30 is achieved at (lambda) =1.55micrometers . This high-Q cavity will enable realistic realization of spontaneous emission modification and on-off optical switches.
