|Title:||a-SiOx < Er > active photonic crystal resonator membrane fabricated by focused Ga+ ion beam|
|Abstract:||We have fabricated thin erbium-doped amorphous silicon suboxide (a-SiOx < Er >) photonic crystal membrane using focused gallium ion beam (FIB). The photonic crystal is composed of a hexagonal lattice with a H1 defect supporting two quasi-doubly degenerate second order dipole states. 2-D simulation was used for the design of the structure and full 3-D FDTD (Finite-Difference Time-Domain) numerical simulations were performed for a complete analysis of the structure. The simulation predicted a quality factor for the structure of Q = 350 with a spontaneous emission enhancement of 7. Micro photoluminescence measurements showed an integrated emission intensity enhancement of similar to 2 times with a Q = 130. We show that the discrepancy between simulation and measurement is due to the conical shape of the photonic crystal holes and the optical losses induced by FIB milling.
