Abstract

Temporal behaviour of incident pulse in high-quality (Q) factor photonic crystal microcavities are studied by two dimensional finite difference time domain calculations. For high-Q mode excitation, two periods of oscillation are observed in addition to the exponential decay corresponding to the cavity mode photon life time. Long and short period oscillations correspond to beats with low-Q mode (for short pulse widths) and to lattice periodicity for all pulse widths, respectively. For low-Q mode and off-resonant excitations, long period oscillations correspond to coupling to bandedge states.
