3D FDTD calculation results for NTI = 4 and Lc = 400 nm - showing the variation of the optical transmission and Q-factor values for: (a) different numbers of periodic mirror holes, without any tapering outside the cavity - and (b) for N = 4, with different numbers of aperiodic holes in the taper section used outside the cavity, NTO in conjunction with the taper design shown in Fig. 1
