Silicon is the key enabling material for advanced technologies in electronics, and photonics. Recently, we have developed silicon nanocavities (SNs) [1,2] with particle size between 300 nm and 3000 nm. Silicon has an extremely high refractive index value, so SNs behave as optical microcavities in the near IR region. Here we will report on the following applications of SNs.
