Abstract

We present a detailed study of the localized coupled-cavity modes in a photonic molecule formed from two dielectric spherical microcavities with CdTe nanocrystals, which show a multi-peak narrowband modal structure resulting from lifting of the mode degeneracy with respect to the azimuthal quantum number. The feasibility of photonic molecules as the basis for a multi-channel, wavelength-tunable optical delay device is analysed.
