Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We developed a method for calculating the Q-factor of a 2D photonic crystal nanocavity directly from the in-plane wavevector distribution of the cavity mode. A high-Q of >107 was obtained with high accuracy and speed.
