Defect Modes of a Two-Dimensional Photonic Crystal in an Optically Thin Dielectric Slab

Research Area: Nanophotonics Year: 1999
Type of Publication: Article Keywords: finite-difference time-domain, photonic crystal, defect modes, quality factor
Authors: Painter, Oskar; Vuckovic, Jelena; Scherer, Axel
Journal: Journal of the Optical Society of America B Volume: 16
Number: 2 Pages: 275-285
Month: February
We present a three-dimensional finite-difference time-domain analysis of localized defect modes in an optically thin dielectric slab that is patterned with a two-dimensional array of air holes. The symmetry, quality factor, and radiation pattern of the defect modes and their dependence on the slab thickness are investigated.
