Abstract

The modification of spontaneous emission from the hydrogenated amorphous silicon nitride layers in a coupled-microcavity (CMC) structure was investigated. The CMC structure was composed of alternating silicon-oxide and silicon-nitride multilayers. The results showed that the strong enhancement of spontaneous emisssion can be achieved throughout the cavity band.
