  • Light is intrinsically very difficult to store in a small space. The ability to trap photons for a long time (photon lifetime, τph) and to slow the propagation of light plays a significant role in quantum information1,2,3 and optical processing4,5,6. Photonic-crystal cavities with an ultrahigh quality factor (Q) are attracting attention7,8 because of their extremely small volume; however, high-Q demonstrations have been accomplished only with spectral measurements9,10,11. Here we describe time… CONTINUE READING
