Acoustic resonant cavities play a vital role in modern acoustical systems. The ultrahigh quality‐factor resonances are highly desired for some applications such as high‐resolution acoustic sensors and acoustic lasers. Here, a class of supercavity resonances is theoretically proposed and experimentally demonstrated in a coupled acoustic resonator system, arising from the merged bound states in the continuum (BICs) in geometry space. Their topological origin is demonstrated by explicitly…

Topologically enabled ultrahigh-Q guided resonances robust to out-of-plane scattering

This work theoretically propose and experimentally demonstrate a class of guided resonances in photonic crystal slabs, in which out-of-plane-scattering losses are strongly suppressed by their topological nature, and paves the way for future explorations of topological photonics in systems with open boundary conditions.

Abstract. High-index dielectric resonators support different types of resonant modes. However, it is challenging to achieve a high-Q factor in a single dielectric nanocavity due to the non-Hermitian
