We present experimental and theoretical studies of coupled resonances in multiple silicon photonic crystal cavities in an all-optical classical analogy to electromagnetically induced transparency. Multiple implementation schemes are demonstrated, such as two (in various configurations), and four cavities. The photonic crystal cavities are embedded in 2-D photonic crystal slabs and designed in the overcoupled regime. Our observations include measured transparency resonance lifetimes more than three times the single-cavity lifetimes, Fano-like lineshapes, and stepwise resonance control through multiple aligned external optical pump beams. All observed schemes are analyzed rigorously through finite-difference time-domain simulations and the coupled-mode formalism. Our experimental and theoretical results are applicable to optical pulse trapping and all-optical dynamical storage of light in the solid state.
