Resonant cavities are a major building block of photonic integrated circuits devices. Therefore it is important to understand how to control the properties of their resonant modes, such as quality factor (Q), resonant frequency, magnitude, and mode shape. This dissertation examines the effects of incident EM wave polarization, cavity size, cavity permittivity, cavity confinement, material loss, and lattice disorder on the properties of the resonant mode.Diagram of the experimental setup used by Kohli to measure a 2-port channel- drop filter.52 ............ 25 FIG. 1.17.
