Light propagates inside an ideal and infinite photonic crystal when the Bloch condition is satisfied and any allowed light wave is decomposed in a basis of propagating Bloch waves [1]. In real photonic crystals, light propagation is modified due to unavoidable fabrication-induced structural imperfections in size, positions, and permittivity of the building… CONTINUE READING
