Paper Abstract

We compare the intrinsic radiation loss of a coupled-resonator optical waveguide in a photonic-crystal slab to that of a single, isolated resonator. We find that due to interference between different resonators, the waveguide can have far lower loss than the isolated cavity; in other cases it can have far greater loss.
