We report on the all-optical control of chaotic optical resonators based on silicon on insulator (SOI) platform. We show that simple non-chaotic cavities can be tuned to exhibit chaotic behavior via intense optical pump- ing, inducing a local change of refractive index. To this extent we have fabricated a number of devices and demonstrated experimentally and theoretically that chaos can be triggered on demand on an optical chip.
We show here theoretically and experimentally how chaotic Photonic Crystal resonators can be used for en-
ergy harvesting applications and the demonstration of fundamental theories, like the onset of superradiance in
