Paper Abstract

Semiconducting carbon nanotubes are an emerging material for photonics. We report on the enhancement of semiconducting carbon nanotubes photoluminescence with silicon microring resonators. Polyfluorene extracted semiconducting carbon nanotubes, deposited on such resonators, display sharp emission peaks superposed to nanotube emission, which is attributed to the interaction with the cavity modes of the microring resonators. Ring resonators with radii of 5 and 10 μm were used, to demonstrate the tuning of the spectral distance between two successive emission resonances. Quality factors ranged between 3000 and 4000 in emission. These are among the highest values reported so far for carbon nanotubes coupled with optical microcavity on the silicon platform, highlighting the bright perspectives for carbon nanotube photonics.
