Abstract

We demonstrate a novel photonic-crystal nanocavity switch based on a Fano resonance. Compared to conventional structures with Lorentzian lineshape, the Fano resonance reduces the switching energy and suppresses patterning effects, allowing experimental demonstration of 10 Gbit/s RZ-OOK all-optical modulation with input powers less than 1 mW.
