We show both theoretically and experimentally that the lifetime of an active semiconductor photonic crystal nanocavity is enhanced thanks to the combination of two cooperative effects: slow light propagation based on coherent-population-oscillation effect and optical bistability. In particular we develop an analytical analysis enabling us to clearly show the physical mechanisms producing the enhancement of the cavity lifetime.
