Using the effective medium theory, I interpret the band-gap opening in photonic crystals with simple geometries as an interference effect between alternating layers of high and low optical indices and introduce the interesting concept of multidimensional quarter-wave stacks. The interpretation provides a simple insight into band-gap opening processes. For several simple crystal geometries, I analyze the variations of the gap width and depth with respect to the light polarization, the incident… CONTINUE READING
