The photon density required for the saturation of normal-mode coupling in oxide-apertured nanocavities is measured to be 90 photons/μm2 by pump-probe experiments. The photon number is only 300 for a semiconductor nanocavity with a 2 μm diameter aluminum-oxide aperture, drastically reduced from 200 000 for a 50 μm waist on a planar microcavity.
