Lattice distortion generates bound states in the continuum

Sadreev, A.// Science China: Physics, Mechanics and Astronomy//

High-Q optical cavity is an indispensable component of many photonic devices, such as lasers, sensors, harmonic generation and photon emission, and chiral dichroism. Conventional way of realizing ultrahigh Q-factor relies on Fabry-Pérot resonators, photonic crystal nanocavities fabricated by a CMOS-compatible process, or whispering gallery modes.
