Photonic crystal nanocavities at visible wavelengths are fabricated in a high refractive index ͑n Ͼ 3.2͒ gallium phosphide membrane. The cavities are probed via a cross-polarized reflectivity measurement and show resonances at wavelengths as low as 645 nm at room temperature, with quality factors between 500 and 1700 for modes with volumes 0.7͑␭ / n͒ 3.(More)
We describe and experimentally demonstrate a technique for deterministic, large coupling between a photonic crystal (PC) nanocavity and single photon emitters. The technique is based on in situ scanning of a PC cavity over a sample and allows the precise positioning of the cavity over a desired emitter with nanoscale resolution. The power of the technique(More)
We demonstrate and characterize continuous wave ␹ ͑2͒ sum-frequency generation in gallium phosphide photonic crystal nanocavities. We use two confined modes of the nanocavity in the wavelength range 1500–1600 nm to enhance conversion efficiency. Our results show that these nanocavities can serve as integrated light sources across a range of wavelengths, and(More)
Fluorescence spectroscopy is a promising technology for detection of epithelial precancers and cancers. While age and menopausal status influence measurements in the cervix, other variables do not significantly affect the diagnosis. In this study we examine probe pressure as a variable. A fiber optic probe to measure fluorescence spectra at different(More)
We demonstrate second harmonic generation in photonic crystal nanocavities fabricated in the semiconductor gallium phosphide. We observe second harmonic radiation at 750 nm with input powers of only nanowatts coupled to the cavity and conversion effciency P(out)/P(2)(in,coupled)=430%/W. The large electronic band gap of GaP minimizes absorption loss,(More)
Organic light-emitting devices (OLEDs) are a promising technology for flat-panel displays and solid-state lighting. While OLED efficiencies have increased dramatically in recent years, further progress is complicated by the fact that the vast majority of organic materials are fluorescent and therefore emit only from molecular excited states ('excitons')(More)
We propose and experimentally demonstrate a photonic crystal nanocavity with multiple resonances that can be tuned nearly independently. The design is composed of two orthogonal intersecting nanobeam cavities. Experimentally , we measure cavity quality factors of 6600 and 1000 for resonances separated by 382 nm ; we measure a maximum separation between(More)
We utilize cross-phase modulation to observe all-optical switching in microring resonators fabricated with hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H). Using 2.7-ps pulses from a mode-locked fiber laser in the telecom C-band, we observe optical switching of a cw telecom-band probe with full-width at half-maximum switching times of 14.8 ps, using approximately(More)
OBJECTIVE Fluorescence spectroscopy is a promising technology for the detection of cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions (SILs). In this study we took repeated measures in the cervix to determine whether the order of measurement produces changes in fluorescence intensity and whether there are differences in variation due to pressure. METHODS A(More)
Photoluminescent molecules are coupled to high quality photonic crystal nanocavities. The cavities are fabricated in a gallium phosphide membrane and show resonances from 735 to 860 nm with quality factors up to 12 000. The molecules, which are dispersed in a thin polymer film deposited on top of the cavities, can be selectively positioned onto the location(More)
