8 Bandwidth of Micro-Cavity Waveguides Transmission vs. wavelength Transmission bandwidth vs. inter-cavity spacing Inter-cavity coupling via tunneling: Large inter-cavity spacing weak coupling narrow bandwidth

9 Tight Binding Theory A propagation modal solution of the form: where Insert into the variational formulation: The single cavity modal field resonates at frequency

10
10 Where: Tight Binding Theory (Cont.) The result is a shift invariant equation for : It has a solution of the form: - Wave-number along cavity array The operator, restricted to the k-th defect Infinite Band-Diagonally dominant matrix equation:

11
11 Variational Solution k M /|a 1 | /|b| c M Wide spacing limit: Bandwidth: Central frequency – by the local defect nature; Bandwidth – by the inter cavity spacing.

12
12 Center Frequency Tuning Recall that: Approach: Varying a defect parameter tuning of the cavity resonance Example: Tuning by varying posts radius (nearest neighbors only) Transmission vs. radius

13
13 Structure Variation and Disorder: Cavity Perturbation + Tight Binding Theories - Perfect micro-cavity - Perturbed micro-cavity Interested in: Then (for small ) For radius variations Modes of the unperturbed structure [1] Steinberg, Boag, Lisitsin, Sensitivity Analysis …, JOSA A 20, 138 (2003)

14
14 Disorder I: Single Cavity case Cavity perturbation theory gives: Uncorrelated random variation - all posts in the crystal are varied Due to localization of cavity modes – summation can be restricted to N closest neighbors Variance of Resonant Wavelength Perturbation theory: Summation over 6 nearest neighbors Statistics results: Exact numerical results of 40 realizations

15
15 Disorder & Structure variation II: The CCW case Mathematical model is based on the physical observations: 1.The micro-cavities are weakly coupled. 2.Cavity perturbation theory tells us that effect of disorder is local (since it is weighted by the localized field ) therefore: The resonance frequency of the -th microcavity is where is a variable with the properties studied before. Since depends essentially on the perturbations of the -th microcavity closest neighbors, can be considered as independent for. 3.Thus: tight binding theory can still be applied, with some generalizations Modal field of the (isolated) – th microcavity. Its resonance is

19
19 Sensitivity to structural variation & disorder In the single micro-cavity the frequency standard deviation is proportional to geometry / standard deviation In a complete CCW there is a threshold type behavior - if the frequency of one of the cavities exceeds the boundaries of the perfect CCW, the device collapses

21 Matching a CCW to Free Space Matching Post

22
22 Technical Difficulties Numerical size: Need to solve the entire problem: ~200 dielectric cylinders ~4 K unknowns (at least) Solution by direct inverse is too slow for optimization Resonance of high Q structures Iterative solution converges slowly within cavities Optimization course requires many forward solutions To circumvent the difficulties: Sub-structuring approach

23
23 Sub-Structuring approach Main Structure Unchanged during optimization m Unknowns Sub Structure Undergoes optimization n Unknowns

24
24 Sub-Structuring (cont.) The large matrix has to be computed & inverted only once; unchanged during optimization At each optimization cycle: invert only matrix Major cost of a cycle scales as: Note that Solve formally for the master structure, and use it for the sub-structure

25
25 Two possibilities for Optimization in 2D domain (R,d): Optimal matching Matching a CCW to Free Space Full 2D search approach. Using series of alternating orthogonal 1D optimizations Fast Risk of missing the optimal point. Additional important parameters to consider: 1.Matching bandwidth 2.Output beam collimation/quality Tests performed on the CCW: Hexagonal lattice: a=4, r=0.6, =8.41. Cavity: post removal. Central wavelength: =9.06

26
26 Search paths and Field Structures @ optimum Matching Post @ 1st optimum Crystal Matching Post @ 7th optimum @ R=1.2. Alternating 1D scannings approach: Good matching, but Radiation field is not well collimated. Improved beam collimation at the output Achieved optimum R=0.4, X=71.3 Starting point Full 2D search: Good matching, good collimation.

27
27 Field Structure @ Optimum (R=0.4, X=71.3) Improved beam collimation at the output Hexagonal lattice: a=4, r=0.6, =8.41. Cavity: post removal.

41 Basic Principles Stationary Rotating at angular velocity A CCW folded back upon itself in a fashion that preserves symmetry C - wise and counter C - wise propag are identical. Conventional self-adjoint formulation. Dispersion is the same as that of a regular CCW except for additional requirement of periodicity: Micro-cavities Co-Rotation and Counter - Rotation propag DIFFER. E-D in accelerating systems; non self-adjoint Dispersion differ for Co-R and Counter-R: Two different directions

42
