High Frequency Dynamic Tuning of Photonic Crystal Nanocavities by Means of Acoustic Phonons

  • This thesis discusses original experiments performed in the context of solid-state cavity quantum electrodynamics (cQED). The manipulation of the resonance condition of a photonic crystal membrane nanocavity coupled to self-assembled InAs quantum dots by a coherent beam of acoustic phonons is demonstrated. Tuning the nanocavity resonance by means of surface acoustic waves facilitates high tuning rates while maintaining the cavity Q-factor.
