Abstract: We present dynamic tuning or optical resonance using microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)-driven coupled photonic crystal (PhC) nanocavities. The device consists of an air-suspended one-dimensional PhC nanocavity coupled to input and output waveguides and a perturbing nanocavity attached to a submicrometer MEMS comb drive. Resonance tuning is achieved through varying the gap between the two coupled cavities. We demonstrate experimentally that resonance can be tuned up to 8 nm with no significant deterioration in the Q factor. The proposed mechanism potentially enables a new platform of on-chip photonic devices that can achieve a large tuning range with low power and small footprint and may find useful applications in tunable optical/photonic devices. © 2010 Optical Society of America.
