Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In this study, we apply ultrahigh-Q (>1 million) nanocavities in silicon photonic crystals for slowlight application. We have observed the group velocity down to c/50,000 and succeeded in cascading N>100 ultrahigh-Q cavities in series.
