We report on theoretical investigation of a hybrid cavity structure which has been conducted within the
European Action COST MP0702. The structure, which can reach ultrahigh Q factors, consists of a sizemodulated
1D stack cavity made in a III-V material and coupled to a silicon waveguide. We present results of structure behavior simulations obtained by four independent rigorous numerical techniques. We discuss
qualitative physical properties of the simulations results and identify the main physical effects contributing to the
total Q factor.
