Paper Abstract

A design is proposed to enhance the quality factor of a photonic crystal ring resonator. A super defect is employed inside the ring resonator, which consists of variation of hole dimensions inside the ring resonator in such a way that the radiation field components of the resonant nanocavity are forced to get cancelled in order to reduce radiation loss. After this forced cancellation, the improved Q factor is calculated as 18,000. This photonic crystal ring resonator can be used for sensing applications like force sensing, pressure sensing, biochemical sensing, and communication applications like demultiplexing.
