A nonlinear dynamic model of a one-dimensional photonic crystal nanocavity resonator is presented. It considers the internal tensile stress and the geometric characteristics of a photonic crystal with rectangular (and circular) holes. The solution of the dynamic model shows that the internal tensile stress can suppress the hardening and softening behaviors of the resonator. However, the stress can reduce the amplitude, which is not conducive to an improvement of the sensitivity of the sensor. It is demonstrated that with an optimized beam length, the normalized frequency drift of the beam can be stabilized within 1% when the optical power increases from 2 mW to 6 mW. When the hole size of the resonator beam is close to the beam width, its increase can lead to a sharp rise of the resonant frequency and the promotion of hardening behavior. Moreover, the increase in the optical power initially leads to the softening behavior of the resonator followed by an intensification of the hardening behavior. These theoretical and numerical results are helpful in understanding the intrinsic mechanism of the nonlinear response of an optomechanical resonator, with the objective of avoiding the nonlinear phenomena by optimizing key parameters.
