Suspended GaN-based band-edge type photonic crystal nanobeam cavities.

We demonstrated GaN-based photonic crystal (PC) nanobeam cavities by using the e-beam lithography and the suspended nanobeams were realized by focused-ion beam (FIB) milling. One resonant mode was clearly observed at 411.7 nm at 77K by optical pumping. The quality factor was measured to be to 7.4 × 10(2). Moreover, the degree of polarization value was… CONTINUE READING
